I vespri siciliani by Giuseppe Verdi( )

1 edition published in 1982 in Italian and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Verdi's gripping tale of Sicilians rising against the occupying French stars Renata Scotto in her only broadcast of this rarely heard masterpiece. From the beginning of the opera, when Elena (Scotto) sings an "innocent" song fanning the people's resentment against the foreign army, to the end, when the ringing of her wedding bells signals the start of the revolt, Scotto's artistry blazes. James Levine leads the Met Orchestra and Chorus in a wonderfully idiomatic performance, and Ruggero Raimondi is magnificent as Procida, the outlawed Sicilian leader
Manon Lescaut by Giacomo Puccini( Visual )

1 edition published in 1980 in Italian and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

All the throbbing eroticism--and ultimate heartbreak--of Puccini's youthful score is unleashed by James Levine and his top-flight cast. Plácido Domingo is Des Grieux, the handsome, headstrong young aristocrat who falls head over heels for the enticing, impetuous Manon Lescaut (Renata Scotto). Manon returns his love, but her obsession with luxury ruins them both. Gian Carlo Menotti's opulent production, with sets and costumes by Desmond Heeley, superbly captures the colorful world of 18th century France
Ernani by Giuseppe Verdi( )

1 edition published in 1985 in Italian and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ernani (Ermanno Mauro), a once-wealthy Spanish aristocrat, has become the head of a band of outlaws and is about to kidnap his beloved, Elvira (Leona Mitchell), from the castle of her elderly guardian, de Silva (Paul Plishka). De Silva, meanwhile, plans to marry Leonora himself--but she is also wooed by Don Carlo, King of Spain (Pablo Elvira). After many threats, plots, lies, and conspiracies, Elvira and Ernani are finally allowed to marry--only to see their happiness snatched away from them at the last moment
La favorita by Gaetano Donizetti( Recording )

5 editions published between 1975 and 2001 in Italian and English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This spectacular cast makes any listener wonder why such a marvelous, colorful opera isn't much better known. Sensational Shirley Verrett is Leonora, the beautiful, mysterious lady who so completely captures the heart of the monk Fernando (Luciano Pavarotti at his finest) that he forsakes his calling to defeat the Moors in battle in order to win her hand. Alas, she is the mistress of the king (Sherrill Milnes), who is so besotted with her he is determined to defy the pope himself to make Leonora his queen. It's a tragic opera, so no one wins--except the audience
