Lohengrin by Richard Wagner( Recording )

71 editions published between 1982 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 1,243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ben Heppner is the Knight of the Holy Grail, sent by heaven to defend pure, innocent Elsa (Deborah Voigt), against the evil slander of Telramund (Hans-Joachim Ketelsen) and his wicked wife. Ortrud (Deborah Polaski). But how can Elsa truly trust her hero, if she's forbidden to even ask his name or where he comes from? Wagner's colorful music blazes under James Levine's conducting, and the Met orchestra and chorus are a thrilling part of the storytelling. This is shimmering Romanticism at its best
Parsifal : [ein Bühnenweihfestspiel] by Richard Wagner( Recording )

28 editions published between 1981 and 1990 in 3 languages and held by 715 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wagner's mystical opera makes extraordinary demands on the conductor, but James Levine is renowned for the special affection and authority he brings to this transcendent work. The music shimmers and glows, evoking the legendary world of the Knights of the Holy Grail and the pure fool who brings healing power to the land. Peter Hofmann stars as the questing title hero, Jerome Hines sings the wise old man, Gurnemanz, and Mignon Dunn is the voluptuous Kundry, whose erotic temptations almost ensnare the young hero
