103 editions published between 1324 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 1,849 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

La forza del destino by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

27 editions published between 1960 and 2007 in Italian and Undetermined and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For an entire generation, Zinka Milanov was the Verdi soprano, and this broadcast of one of her greatest roles shows why. Her enormous, dark, rich voice was even from top to bottom, and she could unfurl it dramatically to soar over orchestra and chorus, or scale it back to a haunting whisper. Richard Tucker plays the man who loves her, and Leonard Warren is her brother, who is so consumed with the desire for vengeance that he wants to kill them both
Francesca da Rimini by Riccardo Zandonai( Recording )

This sumptuous production by Piero Faggioni (sets by Ezio Frigerio and costumes by Franca Squarciapino) seduced Met audiences into the enchanting world of Zandonai's rarely heard opera. His retelling of Dante's story of the immortal passion of Paolo and Francesca in 13th century Italy is as musically elegant and beautiful as the details of the production on stage. James Levine's fervent conducting galvanizes the fabulous cast: Renata Scotto and Plácido Domingo as the lovers with Cornell MacNeil as an appropriately brutal Giovanni
