Most widely held works by Eleanor Steber
Vanessa by Samuel Barber( Recording )

54 editions published between 1957 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This broadcast, recorded just two weeks after Vanessa's Met world premiere, presents the original cast in spectacular form. Eleanor Steber is marvelous as the title heroine, a beautiful woman awaiting the return of her long-lost lover. But the man who arrives is his son, Anatol (a suave Nicolai Gedda). The handsome youth plays a dangerous emotional game of wooing both Vanessa and her niece Erika (an enchanting Rosalind Elias)--with devastating consequences. Regina Resnik stars as the Old Baroness and Giorgio Tozzi is the kind Doctor. Conductor Dimitri Mitropoulos gives an impassioned reading of Barber's superb score

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

9 editions published between 1940 and 2000 in Italian and Undetermined and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Verdi's immortal tragedy about the clash of true love with social convention has seldom been as poignant as in this broadcast. The sensational Italian tenor Giuseppe Di Stefano, in his second season at the Met, offers his first Alfredo with the company--a tender, romantic, and gorgeously sung performance that perfectly matches Eleanor Steber's sumptuous and touching Violetta. Robert Merrill, heard here at the beginning of his career, would go on to make the role of Germont one of his calling cards
