Aida by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

113 editions published between 1974 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 1,791 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this eagerly-awaited complete opera recording from superstar Andrea Bocelli, the tenor assembles a fine cast to explore Verdi's most spectacular work: the award-winning American soprano Kristin Lewis takes the role of Aida, the brilliant Italian mezzo Veronica Simeoni as Amneri. Giorgio Giuseppini takes the role of Il Re (the Egyptian King), the powerful Ambrogio Maestri ("Italy's answer to Bryn Terfel") as Amonasro and Carlo Colombara, renowned Verdi bass, as Ramfis
Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti( Recording )

119 editions published between 1953 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 1,612 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

La Gioconda by Amilcare Ponchielli( )

48 editions published between 1952 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 835 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With Renata Tebaldi wringing every bit of drama out of the title role, there are plenty of opportunities for goose bumps here. Add to that Carlo Bergonzi's glowing portrayal of the Enzo, the man she loves and the impassioned Fiorenza Cossotto as the woman he loves, plus one jealous husband (Bonaldo Giaiotti), and an Inquisition spy (Cornell MacNeil) bent on revenge, and you have operatic extravagance at its wonderful best, all set in romantic, mysterious 17th century Venice

Macbeth and Banquo encounter three prophesying witches on their journey home from battle. Macbeth's ambitions are kindled by the witches' prediction that he will someday be king. In an effort to hasten the prophecy, he and Lady Macbeth plot the murders of those in the way. Under the strain of the heinous crimes, Lady Macbeth dies and Macbeth edges toward insanity. In the tragic climax, Macbeth is killed in a duel and Malcolm becomes king
Simon Boccanegra by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

88 editions published between 1973 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 750 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The great Renata Tebaldi leads the cast as Amelia in this memorable performance of Verdi's drama, still a rarity on stage in the 1960s. Anselmo Colzani is her father, Simon Boccanegra, the corsair who ascends to power as Doge of Genoa but loses the woman he loves. Reunited with his daughter decades later, he faces political opposition from her lover, Gabriele Adorno (George Shirley). Jerome Hines is the patrician Jacopo Fiesco, who is determined to destroy Boccanegra--and doesn't realize that Amelia is his granddaughter. Also caught in the web of deceit and murder is the sinister Paolo, played by Justino Díaz
Il pirata by Vincenzo Bellini( Recording )

57 editions published between 1971 and 2008 in 5 languages and held by 659 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bellini's emotion-drenched opera had never been performed at the Met until superstar soprano Renée Fleming revealed its riches to captivated audiences. Gualtiero (Marcello Giodani) is an exiled count, forced to become a pirate. His enemy Ernesto (Dwayne Croft) blackmails Imogene (Fleming) into marrying him, even though he knows she loves Gualtiero. In the searing final scene Imogene goes insane when Gualtiero is condemned to death. This is riveting bel canto drama as you have seldom hear it

51 editions published between 1975 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 606 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This performance features the legendary African-American contralto Marian Anderson in her history-making Met debut role of Ulrica, the fortune-teller. At first her predictions are all good news. But who would believe the best friend of the king would actually murder him? Absurd. That's what the king (Jan Peerce) thinks. But he loves Amelia (Zinka Milanov), the wife of his friend Renato (Robert Merrill). And when Renato discovers them together, he joins the plot against the king. This is Verdian passion at its best

La forza del destino by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

34 editions published between 1970 and 2004 in 5 languages and held by 542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Verdi painted an immense canvas with this dark but tuneful opera. The legendary Leontyne Price is seen in one of her greatest roles, Leonora. Price's soaring voice encompasses every nuance of Leonora's emotion as she moves from joy through resignation to ultimate heartbreak. James Levine's brilliant leading of the Met orchestra and chorus is a lesson in Verdi style. Giuseppe Giacomini is Alvaro, the man Leonora loves, and Leo Nucci is Don Carlo, the dark instrument of their Fate

36 editions published between 1964 and 1994 in 6 languages and held by 401 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
