L'Orfeo : favola in musica by Claudio Monteverdi( Recording )

21 editions published between 1955 and 2003 in 4 languages and held by 495 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Fusion of Dance and Opera. This production of Monteverdi's L'Orfeo has become an operatic classic in a few short years. This is doubtless because it offers a total symbiosis of music, text and movement -- described by the critic of the daily Telegraph of London as being "as close to the perfect dance opera as I have ever seen'. Christophe Vetter
Ariadne auf Naxos by Richard Strauss( Recording )

20 editions published between 1955 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The great Jessye Norman is Ariadne, the mythological heroine abandoned by her lover on the island of Naxos. In Strauss and Hofmannsthal's charming opera-within-an-opera, she is joined by Ruth Ann Swenson as Zerbinetta, the flirtatious leader of a commedia dell'arte troupe that--by order of an eccentric patron--unexpectedly finds itself in the middle of Ariadne's tragic story. Thomas Moser sings Bacchus, the young god who wins Ariadne, and Susanne Mentzer is the Composer of the fictional opera. Wagnerian bass-baritone Thomas Stewart makes a late-career cameo appearance as the Music Master

45 editions published between 1955 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A brilliant ensemble cast bring Strauss's beloved operetta to life, with new English dialogue by playwright Douglas Carter Beane and lyrics by Jeremy Sams (who also directed this production, first seen on New Year's Eve 2013). Christopher Maltman and Susanna Phillips are Eisenstein and Rosalinde, the married couple at the center of this lighthearted tale of love, revenge, and mistaken identities. Paulo Szot sings Falke, Eisenstein's friend, who sets the plot in motion. Anthony Roth Costanzo is Prince Orlofsky, Jane Archibald sings Adele, and Broadway star Danny Burstein is Frosch, the jailer. Adam Fischer conducts

Under James Levine's inspired conducting, the Met Orchestra and Chorus deliver a thrilling account of this breathtaking score
