The story: Act I. The action unfolds on Cyprus, under Venetian rule in the 16th century. The scene is outside the castle, residence of Otello, governor of the island, facing the port. It is night. A furious storm churns the sea, and a crowd of Venetian citizens and soldiers helplessly watch while the ship of the Moor Otello desperately tries to make it into port. Only Iago, one of Otello's men, does not participate in the general apprehension for the safety of his leader: he hates Otello, because Otello has promoted Cassio captain instead of him; he meditates revenge. The crowd is jubilant as Otello finally lands safely and announces that the Turkish fleet has been defeated. When the Moor enters the castle, the fireworks start and all drink to his victory. In the midst of the rejoicing, Iago starts to weave the scheme that will lead to his commander's downfall: he treacherously insinuates to Roderigo, who had revealed to Iago his love for Otello's wife, Desdemona, that Captain Cassio also feels the same affection for the woman. Then Iago gets Cassio drunk, and incites a fight between the two men, but the dangerous duel that starts between them is stopped by Montano. However, the peacemaker is wounded by Cassio. Iago sounds the alarm, swelling the episode out of proportion until the crowd is in tumult. Called back by the shouts and noise, Otello, falsely informed by Iago, punishes Cassio and demotes him. This is a first victory for Iago, who exults
L'elisir d'amore by Gaetano Donizetti( Recording )

4 editions published between 1985 and 2004 in Italian and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This performance showcases Luciano Pavarotti at his magnificent best. The role of good hearted Nemorino might have been written just for him. Hopelessly in love with wealthy Adina (Kathleen Battle), Nemorino watches, helpless, as flashy Sergeant Belcore (Gino Quilico) seems to win her heart. Enter Dr. Dulcamara (Paul Plishka). He's a quack, but Nemorino believes that the love potion Dulcamara is peddling will help him win Adina's love. It's only a bottle of plain old Bordeaux, but never underestimate the power of true love -- or of Luciano Pavarotti's seductive tenor

With Renata Tebaldi wringing every bit of drama out of the title role, there are plenty of opportunities for goose bumps here. Add to that Carlo Bergonzi's glowing portrayal of the Enzo, the man she loves and the impassioned Fiorenza Cossotto as the woman he loves, plus one jealous husband (Bonaldo Giaiotti), and an Inquisition spy (Cornell MacNeil) bent on revenge, and you have operatic extravagance at its wonderful best, all set in romantic, mysterious 17th century Venice
Cyrano de Bergerac by Franco Alfano( Recording )

3 editions published between 1976 and 2003 in French and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While Franco Alfano may best be remembered as the composer tasked with completing Puccini's Turandot after his untimely death, he was also a skilled creator in his own right, and his 1936 adaptation of the classic tale of Cyrano de Bergerac has found new appreciation by both critics and audiences alike. In this performance, tenor Roberto Alagna takes on the swashbuckling title character, exuding panache throughout and singing with both lyric beauty and ringing top notes. Rising star Jennifer Rowley offers a warm, bright timbre as Roxane, the object of Cyrano's clandestine affections, and as the comely but simple Christian, tenor Atalla Ayan sings with a wealth of ardent lyricism. Juan Jesús Rodríguez brings a rich baritone to the role of De Guiche, with Met favorite Marco Armiliato conducting a lively account of this rare operatic gem
Mefistofele by Arrigo Boito( Recording )

1 edition published in 1967 in Italian and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The elderly scholar Faust is returned to his youth by the satanic Mefistofeles for the pursuit of beauty and knowledge. In the sordid aftermath of two failed love affairs, he reflects on the illusory nature of worldly beauty, and through a mystical union with the divinity, dies redeemed

La favorita by Gaetano Donizetti( Recording )

8 editions published between 1967 and 2016 in Italian and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This spectacular cast makes any listener wonder why such a marvelous, colorful opera isn't much better known. Sensational Shirley Verrett is Leonora, the beautiful, mysterious lady who so completely captures the heart of the monk Fernando (Luciano Pavarotti at his finest) that he forsakes his calling to defeat the Moors in battle in order to win her hand. Alas, she is the mistress of the king (Sherrill Milnes), who is so besotted with her he is determined to defy the pope himself to make Leonora his queen. It's a tragic opera, so no one wins--except the audience
Le comte Ory by Gioacchino Rossini( Recording )

2 editions published in 2001 in French and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tenor Juan Diego Flórez gives a sensational performance in the title role of Rossini's rarely heard, gender-bending comedy. Disguised as nuns, Ory and his men gain entrance to the castle of Countess Adèle (Pretty Yende in her Met debut), but the Counts attempts at seduction go comically wrong. Karine Deshayes is Isolier, Ory's page who is also in love with the Countess and determined to beat the Count at his own game. Nathan Gunn sings Raimbaud, Ory's boon companion, and bel canto specialist Maurizio Benini conducts

Gluck's deeply moving masterpiece returned to the Met in 2007 after an absence of 90 years, featuring an all-star cast vibrantly conducted by Louis Langrée in his company debut. Oreste, sung by the incomparable Plácido Domingo, is hounded by the furies for murdering his mother. 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)
