The beautiful and innocent Gilda (Ekaterina Siurina) has fallen in love with the licentious Duke of Mantua (Joseph Calleja), believing him to be a poor student. Her father Rigoletto, the duke's hunchbacked jester, has dedicated his life to keeping her from harm, and especially from his master. When Gilda is abducted and brought to the duke's palace, Rigoletto turns to the assassin Sparafucile (Robert Lloyd) to get his revenge--but his plan goes horribly wrong, leading to Gilda's death
Samson et Dalila by Camille Saint-Saëns( Recording )

25 editions published between 1978 and 2011 in 7 languages and held by 586 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Biblical tale of the overwhelming love between a Jewish leader (Samson) and a Philistine beauty (Dalila) that turns sour and destroys them both has inspired numerous composers. But it's easy to see why Saint-Saëns's opera has remained a favorite--not only with audiences but also with great singing actors. Seldom has Dalila been so sultry and seductive, or Samson's fall from strong man to blind prisoner been so wrenching. With enticing Risë Stevens and heroic Mario Del Monaco in the titles roles, and Martial Singher as the High Priest, this stunning performance is a true gem

Parisian audiences in 1889 were thrilled by Massenet's wizardry in telling the story of Esclarmonde, the princess of Byzantium with magical powers, and her love for the heroic knight Roland. But the title role was so difficult that the opera languished for decades, until Joan Sutherland, with her dazzling ability to sing the most fearsome embellishments, brought this jewel of an opera to life for modern audiences

Don Carlo : opera in four acts by Giuseppe Verdi( Visual )

35 editions published between 1985 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 513 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Verdi's tragic opera epitomizes human passions; according to Maestro Riccardo Chailly, it is "the darkest piece ever written." In order to establish peace between France and the Spanish Empire, a royal wedding is planned between Don Carlo, Infant of Spain and Elisabetta di Valois, daughter of Henry II. They fall in love on their first meeting in the Fontainebleau forest. For political reasons, it is in fact Carlo's father Fillipe II, son of the Emperor Carlos V and king of Spain who will mary the French princess. While a story of sentimental desolation unfolds, political tensions are also at work in the Flemish part of the Empire. Inquisition and tyranny are raging and Don Carlo sides in favor of the independence of the oppressed region. The tragic conflict reaches its climax when Don Carlo threatens his father with his sword. Rolando Villazón embodies the young prince, rebelling against his father's familial and political authority. The stage direction features a strong christian iconography which sets the opera back in its religious context of 16th century catholic Spain. The cross also symbolizes the "power of the father over the son" which is the main theme of this opera according to Willy Decker
