La Bohème by Giacomo Puccini( Recording )

83 editions published between 1958 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 718 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Seldom has Puccini's beloved opera sounded so sweet and utterly innocent as it does in this emotionally devastating performance. Conductor Thomas Schippers was very young when he led this broadcast, but he understood the nuances of Puccini's style and how to encourage his singers to blossom into their characters. Licia Albanese and Carlo Bergonzi simply are Mimì and Rodolfo, and their love--and loss--are the stuff of operatic legend. With Laurel Hurley as Musetta and Mario Sereni as her on-again, off-again love, Marcello

82 editions published between 1959 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 626 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A marvelous cast vividly brings to life Verdi's passionate story of love, betrayal, and revenge. Suave-voiced Carlo Bergonzi, often called the poet of tenors, is the Swedish king in love with Amelia (the glorious Leontyne Price in stupendous form). But she is the wife of his best friend and confidant, Count Anckarström (the great baritone Robert Merrill) who discovers the lovers' secret and assassinates the king at a royal ball. Roberta Peters is the perky page Oscar and Mignon Dunn is the fortuneteller Ulrica. A stellar lineup of singers from top to bottom
Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti( Recording )

51 editions published between 1966 and 2007 in 6 languages and held by 585 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
Aida by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

81 editions published between 1959 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 566 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Leontyne Price's performance here reminds us why she was the most acclaimed Aida of her time. Grace Bumbry is a fiercely royal Amneris, as passionately in love with Radames (Carlo Bergonzi) as Aida is. But the love triangle is further complicated by two nations at war with each other. And it all comes unraveled when Aida's father (Robert Merrill) forces her to choose between the man she loves and her country. Conductor Thomas Schippers leads this thrilling performance

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

Tosca by Giacomo Puccini( Recording )

46 editions published between 1953 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 508 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tosca, the beautiful, glamorous singer who has all of Rome at her feet, is one of the iconic soprano roles of the Italian repertoire. She's caught between two men--her lover, the handsome, idealistic painter Cavaradossi, and the villainous Baron Scarpia, Rome's all-powerful chief of police, who will stop at nothing to win Tosca for himself. Puccini's story of torture, attempted rape, murder, suicide, and general mayhem is as thrilling and dramatic as anything seen on the operatic stage. Thanks to Eleanor Steber's impetuous title heroine, George London's malevolent Scarpia, and Carlo Bergonzi's romantic Cavaradossi, this Tosca still sends chills down your spine

Poor Luisa Miller (Katia Ricciarelli) has given her heart to a man she knows as "Carlo." But he is really Rodolfo (Luciano Pavarotti), the son of Count Walter (Paul Plishka), who is being pressured by the Count to marry another woman. Despite every effort of Lucia's loving father (Leo Nucci), the evil Wurm (John Cheek), eventually triumphs. But it's Verdi's passionate music that wins in the end, brought to life by a cast who knows how to stir our hearts
