Ernani [opera in four acts] by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )
40 editions published between 1967 and 1994 in 4 languages and held by 598 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Who better than the great Luciano Pavarotti to play Ernani, Verdi's Spanish nobleman forced to become an outlaw. His true love is Elvira (Leona Mitchell) who wants only to be with him. But there are other men who desire her. One is Sherrill Milnes, in one of his most memorable roles as Don Carlo, the king who is elected Emperor Charles V. Another is her legal guardian, Don Ruy Gomez de Silva, played by Ruggero Raimondi--who gives her to Ernani, only to then demand his life to satisfy his honor. James Levine conducts
Lucrezia Borgia by Gaetano Donizetti( Recording )
40 editions published between 1966 and 2009 in 5 languages and held by 494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Based on Victor Hugo's most sensational play, 'Lucrece Borgia', a scandalous tale of murder, torture, incest, homosexuality, drunkenness and orgies, Donizetti's opera is one of the great masterpieces of Italian 'bel canto' repertoire. While omitting some of its more excessive elements, the libretto by Felice Romani inspired Donizetti to compose superb arias, duets, ensembles and choruses, bringing each act to a stirring conclusion. Brimming with high drama and pathos, this production stars Greek diva Dimitra Theodossiou in the infamous title role, praised for her stupendous acting and singing as England's Queen Elizabeth I in Donizetti's 'Roberto Devereux'

Così fan tutte by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( Recording )
17 editions published between 1968 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Two sisters whose fiancés have gone off to war (or so they pretend), a clever maid, a cynical old philosopher, and those same two fiancés in disguise--six characters is all it takes for Mozart and his librettist, Lorenzo Da Ponte, to explore both the fun and the heartbreak that love can lead to in this equally lighthearted and deeply human comedy. James Levine masterfully leads a stellar cast that includes Carol Vaness and Tatiana Troyanos as the sisters, Jerry Hadley and Thomas Hampson as their fiancés, Betsy Norden as Despina, and Richard Van Allen as Don Alfonso
Luisa Miller by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )
37 editions published between 1965 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Conductor Thomas Schippers leads a sensational cast in a gripping opera that at the time of this broadcast hadn't been heard at the Met in almost 40 years. As Luisa, Montserrat Caballé broke hearts, her beautiful voice and limpid singing conveying every nuance of the young girl's plight. Richard Tucker is a passionate, enticing Rodolfo, the man she loves but does not really know. As Luisa's tortured father, Sherrill Milnes demonstrates just how exciting a great Verdi baritone part can be. Ezio Flagello (Wurm) and Giorgio Tozzi (Count Walter) are evil personified

I Puritani by Vincenzo Bellini( Recording )
27 editions published between 1963 and 1997 in 4 languages and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
When this production opened, it had been more than half a century since Met audiences had last heard Bellini's gem of an opera. It was well worth the wait. "The best cast in the world," was how one critic described the legendary performers the Met brought together. The pair sent audiences into a frenzy with their sumptuous, dazzling singing. Joan Sutherland, dubbed "La Stupenda" by her fans and the press, is the hapless heroine Elvira who loses her heart--and her sanity--over Luciano Pavarotti, the Cavalier hero torn between love and duty
Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti( Recording )
22 editions published between 1966 and 1997 in 5 languages and held by 212 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

When George London stepped on stage as the legendary lover Don Giovanni, audiences gasped. Handsome and effortlessly charismatic, he promised to fulfill every woman's desire. No wonder the beautiful Lisa Della Casa (Elvira) didn't want to let him go, and Eleanor Steber (Anna) wants to put off her wedding for another year. Ezio Flagello is the servant Leporello and Cesare Valletti is a very aristocratic Don Ottavio. The great conductor Karl Böhm revisits the opera of his Met debut
