Faust by Charles Gounod( )

5 editions published between 1991 and 2009 in French and held by 766 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

René Pape's swaggering Mephistophélès is as seductive as it is demonic in this story of Faust (Roberto Alagna) who sells his soul to the devil to reclaim his youth. Wasting no time, Faust falls in love with Marguerite (Solie Isokoski) but things soon begin to go horribly wrong. Her brother (Dmitri Hvorostovvsky) is murdered, she goes insane, and Faust is dragged to hell. But the music is unforgettable

Lakmé by Léo Delibes( Recording )

18 editions published in 1998 in 3 languages and held by 470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Con su capacidad de colorear cada frase delicadamente, Natalie Dessay es indudablemente la "soprano coloratura" más grande del siglo. Subestimada, ella podría fácilmente dar credibilidad a su interpretación de este Lakme a través de su muy buena lectura del libreto y de su habilidad de declamar su francés muy bien. Gregory Kunde es uno de los tenores franceses en auge más grandes. Michel Plasson exhibe la mística y erótica música de Delibes con una muy apasionada, delicada y, al mismo tiempo, fuida lectura de la música
