Madama Butterfly by Giacomo Puccini( Recording )

34 editions published between 1958 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 2,222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Madama Butterfly is a story of love betrayed, the innocent Japanese heroine of the title deserted by her faithless American husband and finally driven to suicide
La Bohème by Giacomo Puccini( Recording )

56 editions published between 1951 and 2008 in 5 languages and held by 1,821 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of La bohème is the epitome of young starving artists whose lifestyles and escapades gave us the Bohemian genre. A notion of the poverty in which they are developing their artistic talents is evident from the very first scene as painter Marcello and poet Rodolfo try to keep warm by burning pages from Rodolfo's latest drama. Set in 1830s Paris, we follow the love between Mimi and Rodolfo as the young artists experience triumphs and tragedies

La Gioconda by Amilcare Ponchielli( Recording )

24 editions published between 1958 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With Renata Tebaldi wringing every bit of drama out of the title role, there are plenty of opportunities for goose bumps here. Add to that Carlo Bergonzi's glowing portrayal of the Enzo, the man she loves and the impassioned Fiorenza Cossotto as the woman he loves, plus one jealous husband (Bonaldo Giaiotti), and an Inquisition spy (Cornell MacNeil) bent on revenge, and you have operatic extravagance at its wonderful best, all set in romantic, mysterious 17th century Venice

One of the greatest tenors in Met history, Plácido Domingo recreates the role of his stunning 1968 company debut 40 years after the event. As the swashbuckling aristocratic hero Maurizio, he is wanted by two of the most desirable women in France: Adriana Lecouvreur (Maria Guleghina), the greatest actress in the history of the Comédie-Française, and the scheming Princess de Bouillon (Olga Borodina), who will do anything, even commit murder, to get what she wants
Messa da Requiem by Giuseppe Verdi( )

4 editions published in 2009 in Latin and Undetermined and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This extraordinary performance of Verdi's unforgettable Requiem features a dream cast: soprano Leontyne Price, equally acclaimed for her soaring phrasing and the nobility with which she sings the words, is joined by Plácido Domingo, one of the great Verdi tenors of his generation, distinguished mezzo-soprano Florence Quivar, and magnificent bass John Cheek.

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
