Simon Boccanegra by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

92 editions published between 1973 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 976 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A sensational cast brings Verdi's dark drama--a rarity in 1950--to stirring life. The great baritone Leonard Warren takes on the title role, opposite Astrid Varnay as his long-lost daughter Amelia, one of the legendary Wagnerian soprano's few Italian roles. Met audience favorite Richard Tucker is Gabriele Adorno, Amelia's lover and Boccanegra's political enemy-turned-supporter. Mihály Székely sings Fiesco, Giuseppe Valdengo is Paolo, and Fritz Stiedry conducts
La Gioconda by Amilcare Ponchielli( )

49 editions published between 1952 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 866 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

Il pirata by Vincenzo Bellini( Recording )

59 editions published between 1971 and 2008 in 5 languages and held by 689 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.

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
I puritani by Vincenzo Bellini( Recording )

39 editions published between 1964 and 1994 in 6 languages and held by 614 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
