Berlioz's opera about the legendary hot-blooded Florentine sculptor and goldsmith is a rarity. But under James Levine's masterful conducting the huge and complex score dazzles like one of Cellini's artworks. Marcello Giordani is Benventuo Cellini, who must finish a statue of Perseus for Pope Clement (Robert Lloyd) by nightfall or be hanged as a murderer and rapist. Against all the odds, including the conniving of his vicious rival Fieramosca (Peter Coleman-Wright), Cellini's artistry triumphs, and he can finally be with the woman he loves, Teresa (Isabel Bayrakdarian)

20 editions published between 1991 and 2012 in Italian and Undetermined and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rossini's rarely performed opera about medieval knights, the Crusades, a beautiful but evil sorceress and an enchanted island calls for not only a soprano of almost superhuman abilities but also requires no fewer than six tenors. International opera star Renée Fleming dazzles in the spectacular role of Armida, who undermines the Crusaders by spiriting away the knight Rinaldo whom she loves--only to lose him at the end, which provokes her awesomely destructive fury. Lawrence Brownlee is Rinaldo, who owes his life to Armida but is torn between his patriotic duty and his love for the enchantress. With tenors John Osborn as Goffredo, Kobie van Rensburg as Ubaldo, and Barry Banks as Carlo. Riccardo Frizza conducts
