Pollione, a Roman Proconsul, has two children by Norma, a Druid priestess, in the course of a long relationship. Norma isn't as young and beautiful as once she was. A temple virgin, Adalgisa, is young and beautiful. Pollione must have her. He has importuned the young virgin to run away with him to Rome, and she has finally agreed. When Norma learns of Pollione's faithlessness, she threatens to kill the two children. Before she can do this, the Druid temple priests apprehend Pollione as he attempts to abscond with their sacred virgin, Adalgisa. The priests build a pyre to burn Pollione to death. Norma relents. Instead of killing the children, she blames herself for her misery and climbs onto the pyre to die with Pollione
Norma by Vincenzo Bellini( )

37 editions published between 1951 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Si hay un caso de identificación entre un cantante y un personaje, ese es sin duda el de María Callas y Norma. Esta segunda grabación realizada para EMI (esta vez con sonido estéreo) se puede considerar como una declaración de principios de lo que era el canto para Callas. Una mujer madura despechada y abandonada por su amante no puede cantar como un jilguero; así el deterioro vocal que presentaba en 1960 lo convierte en una ayuda para la caracterización dramática del personaje
Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti( )

12 editions published between 1978 and 2017 in Italian and held by 315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is Maria Callas's only broadcast from the stage of the Met. Hearing "La Divina" in an actual performance is a unique thrill, and Lucia is a huge part of the palpable Callas mystique. Donizetti's bloody tale of the Scottish lass torn from her true love and forced into an arranged marriage, only to go mad and murder her bridegroom on their wedding night, was the perfect vehicle for Callas's wizardry. Her haunting voice simply becomes Lucia's--every facet of emotion so pronounced that we cannot escape her spell

10 editions published between 1980 and 1991 in 3 languages and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James Levine on the podium brings an ideal blend of sparkle and lyricism to Rossini's enchanting comedy. Olga Borodina is Isabella, the Italian girl who ends up in Algiers as she searches for her lost lover, Lindoro, sung by the sensational Juan Diego Flórez. Ferruccio Furlanetto is Mustafà, the Bey of Algiers, who keeps Lindoro prisoner and decides to make Isabella his own wife--even though he is already married to Elvira (Lyubov Petrova). Earle Patriarco is Taddeo and Mariusz Kwiecien sings the pirate captain Haly

Mignon by Ambroise Thomas( Recording )

16 editions published between 1970 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this performance, the sensational Risë Stevens sings one of her signature roles, the shy but loving Mignon. It's a true operatic rarity, not heard at the Met since Stevens last did it in 1949, and it overflows with astonishing musical variety. The opera has at least two roles dear to the hearts of great singing actors: Mignon, and old Lothario, who turns out to be her father - here the superb Ezio Pinza in a stellar performance. Mimi Benzell is the flirtatious Philine, and James Melton is Wilhelm Meister, Mignon's true love
