Otello by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )
92 editions published between 1324 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 835 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

Francesca da Rimini by Riccardo Zandonai( Recording )
16 editions published between 1975 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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

Andrea Chénier by Umberto Giordano( Visual )
5 editions published between 1958 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Del Monaco and Tebaldi sang Chenier together for the first time on March 6 1949, at La Scala, Milan, when both were just beginning their great international careers. They later performed the opera in Rome, and at the Metropolitan Opera in 1955. We are especially grateful that this 1961 televised performance from Tokyo has survived. In addition to being the only visual document of the two singers together in actual performance, it also proved to be the final occasion on which Tebaldi's Maddalena faced death at the side of del Monaco's Chenier-- the two never again appeared together in this opera

Mario del Monaco is seen here as Canio. His towering vocal attributes are reinforced by his visual performance, which perfectly matches the intensity of his musical interpretation. Above all, his ability to spin out a seemingly endless supply of powerful, rich, solid, and uniquely "pointed" tone is nothing short of thrilling. Beyond the quality of the individual performances one finds something even more precious: an Italian ensemble performing a quintessentially Italian opera in a consistent, integrated, and completely idiomatic musical and dramatic style
