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.

I vespri siciliani [opera in 5 acts] by Giuseppe Verdi( )

6 editions published between 1974 and 1999 in Italian and Undetermined and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Verdi's gripping tale of Sicilians rising against the occupying French stars Renata Scotto in her only broadcast of this rarely heard masterpiece. From the beginning of the opera, when Elena (Scotto) sings an "innocent" song fanning the people's resentment against the foreign army, to the end, when the ringing of her wedding bells signals the start of the revolt, Scotto's artistry blazes. James Levine leads the Met Orchestra and Chorus in a wonderfully idiomatic performance, and Ruggero Raimondi is magnificent as Procida, the outlawed Sicilian leader

12 editions published between 1975 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pushkin's dark tale of mistimed love and its tragic consequences inspired some of Tchaikovsky's most passionate and beautiful music. With James Levine at the helm, this impressive cast realizes every emotional nuance. Mirella Freni is at her most heartbreaking as Tatiana, the girl who falls in love for the first time, only to be coldly rejected by the sophisticated Onegin (Jorma Hynninen), who realizes his mistake far too late. Jerry Hadley is the sterling but hapless, Lenski
