Aida by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

81 editions published between 1951 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 1,038 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Verdi's Aida has come to symbolize grand opera, and with such a legendary cast as the one assembled for this performance it's easy to see why. With her sumptuous sound, Zinka Milanov embodied Aida for a generation of opera-lovers, and her distinctive voice filled the theater, and listeners' hearts, with every facet of the character's conflicting emotions. With the great Leonard Warren as her father, Amonasro, their monumental clash, then reconciliation, is a performance for the ages. Fedora Barbieri is Amneris, Aida's rival for the love of the mighty warrior Radamès (Kurt Baum), and Jerome Hines is the high priest Ramfis

Opera's most popular double bill comes to dramatic life in this broadcast with a lineup of great singing actors, led by the magnetic Zinka Milanov as Santuzza and the incomparable Richard Tucker as her beloved Turiddu, in Mascagni's Cavalleria Rusticana. Pagliacci's iconic clown, Canio, is sung by Kurt Baum, opposite Delia Rigal as Nedda--his young wife whose infidelity leads to tragedy and death, in a thrilling scene of life imitating art. The legendary Leonard Warren is Tonio

La Gioconda by Amilcare Ponchielli( Recording )

46 editions published between 1953 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 406 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For a generation, Zinka Milanov owned the role of La Gioconda, the woman who kills herself rather than yield to the cruel Inquisition spy (Leonard Warren) as she saves the man she loves (Kurt Baum) and the woman he loves (Fedora Barbieri). With the great Cesare Siepi and the sumptuous-voiced Jean Madeira, this opera is filled with over-the-top emotion and white-hot drama
Un ballo in maschera by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

55 editions published between 1940 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 276 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 )

32 editions published between 1952 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 264 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
