Le nozze di Figaro K. 492 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart ( Recording )
42 editions published between 1982 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 1,137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
With James Levine's masterful conducting, Mozart's sublime score works its colorful magic in this upstairs/downstairs drama. Ruggero Raimondi (Figaro) and Kathleen Battle (Susannah) are the servants, caught up in the ongoing domestic drama of the Count and Countess (Thomas Allen and Carol Vaness). Only all is not what it seems, and the battle lines keep shifting in the most unexpected ways. Frederica von Stade is Cherubino, the young page body who's in love with love and who keeps complicating everyone's best laid plans at exactly the wrong times

He has been shipwrecked on Tauris where he and his friend Pylade (Paul Groves) are condemned to die at the hands of the priestess Iphigénie (Susan Graham). At the sacrificial altar Oreste and Iphigénie suddenly realize they are brother and sister--and face slaughter by the angry king Thoas (William Shimell)

Così fan tutte by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart ( )
39 editions published between 1990 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
To truly enjoy Mozart's comedy of romantic intrigue, you need six spectacular singers and a great conductor to bring out all the subtly and verve in the music. Fortunately, we have James Levine on the podium, and Carol Vaness and Susanne Mentzer as the sisters engaged to Jerry Hadley and Dwayne Croft. And with Cecilia Bartoli as their feisty, manipulative maid, who just happens to be in cahoots with scheming Thomas Allen--Mozart has seldom been so elegantly and earthily sung

23 editions published between 1981 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Werther is one of the iconic figures in literature, an innocent young man who feels nature deeply and loves unreservedly. In Massenet's alluring operatic version, Alfredo Kraus magnificently captures every nuance of this complex character--his aristocratic bearing and pure soul, his anguish that the only woman he can love is promised to another man, and finally the despair that leads to his suicide. Frederica von Stade sings Charlotte, the woman who returns Werther's feelings but honors her promise to someone else. Dawn Upshaw is a sparkling Sophie, Charlotte's younger sister
