Tannhäuser by Richard Wagner( )

49 editions published between 1959 and 2013 in German and Undetermined and held by 752 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wagner worked on Tannhäuser, his fifth opera, from 1842 to 1845, conducting the first performance on October 19, 1845 at the Dresden Royal Opera. The first two nights were uncertaqin successes, but by the third performance the opera began to have its effect on the audience. Over the next few years it became enormously popular throughout Germany, then moved to other countries. In 1859 it became the first Wagner opera to be performed in America. By 1861 Tannhäuser had been given hundreds of times, when Wagner was called upon to produce a revised version for the Paris Opéra. Despite the composer's efforts to adapt the work for French tastes, anti-Wagner riots broke out and he withdrew the work. It was not seen again in France until 1895. Meanwhile Tannhäuser, in the Dresden version, opened the second season of New York's Metropolitan Opera in November of 1884. Nowadays either the Dresden or Paris version may be given, depending on the director's preference; the current recording is an amalgam of the two. -- Page [1-2] of program notes

Wozzeck by Alban Berg( Recording )

14 editions published between 1965 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James Levine, a longtime champion of this groundbreaking work, has conducted every Met performance of Wozzeck since 1974. He brings Berg's revolutionary score to dramatic life in this broadcast, leading an extraordinary cast headed by Christian Boesch and Hildegard Behrens. Boesch gives a heartbreaking performance as the poor, abused soldier of the title, and Behrens is stunning as his faithless and conflicted wife, Marie. Richard Cassilly sings the vain Drum Major who seduces her, and Ragnar Ulfung and Franz Mazura are the Captain and the Doctor, who mock and torture Wozzeck
