Don Carlo by Giuseppe Verdi( )

15 editions published between 1950 and 2009 in Italian and Undetermined and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the Met's first radio broadcast of Verdi's magnificent opera. The company had not performed the work since the 1920s when Rudolf Bing opened his first season as general manager with it, five days before this performance. The production introduced two spectacular new singers to New York: Cesare Siepi (King Philip) and Fedora Barbieri (Eboli). Add Jussi Björling in the title role and Robert Merrill as his friend, Rodrigo, and it's easy to see why this now legendary cast thrilled audiences--and why Don Carlo has since become a staple of the Met repertoire
La forza del destino by Giuseppe Verdi( )

12 editions published between 1952 and 2011 in Italian and French and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For an entire generation, Zinka Milanov was the Verdi soprano, and this broadcast of one of her greatest roles shows why. Her enormous, dark, rich voice was even from top to bottom, and she could unfurl it dramatically to soar over orchestra and chorus, or scale it back to a haunting whisper. Richard Tucker plays the man who loves her, and Leonard Warren is her brother, who is so consumed with the desire for vengeance that he wants to kill them both

But Telramund's wife, the evil sorceress Ortrud (Margaret Harshaw), has other plans in this contest between good and evil.

A sensational cast brings Verdi's dark drama--a rarity in 1950--to stirring life. The great baritone Leonard Warren takes on the title role, opposite Astrid Varnay as his long-lost daughter Amelia, one of the legendary Wagnerian soprano's few Italian roles. Met audience favorite Richard Tucker is Gabriele Adorno, Amelia's lover and Boccanegra's political enemy-turned-supporter.

Götterdämmerung by Richard Wagner( )

3 editions published between 1957 and 2013 in German and English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Siegfried and Brünnhilde are the ideal mythical couple: the greatest hero the world has ever seen, born of a divine father, and a fearless warrior maiden of equally noble ancestry. As he takes off for more heroic adventures at the beginning of this final part of Wagner's epic Ring cycle, he even gives her his all-powerful ring as reminder of their love. The next time they meet, he's about to marry another woman--and swears he has never seen Brünnhilde. The culmination of one the grandest theatrical journeys, this opera features some of Wagner's most ravishingly beautiful and emotionally shattering music. Margaret Harshaw and Wolfgang Windgassen are the ill-fated couple, with Kurt Böhme as the evil mastermind Hagen

3 editions published in 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tristan und Isolde by Richard Wagner( )

3 editions published between 1958 and 2009 in German and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wagner's ode to the power of all-consuming love makes inhuman demands on the tenor and soprano who portray the two lovers. Fortunately in this broadcast we have Ramon Vinay as Tristan--a singing actor known for intensity and spontaneity in his stage appearances. His Isolde is the great American soprano Margaret Harshaw in her only broadcast of this role. The wronged King Marke, who loses both his wife and his best friend, is the superb Otto Edelmann. Fritz Stiedry conducts
