Armida by Gioacchino Rossini( Recording )

15 editions published between 1952 and 1990 in 3 languages and held by 67 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
Don Pasquale by Gaetano Donizetti( )

5 editions published between 1970 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When a wealthy old bachelor decides to take a pretty young wife, he is--this being opera--in for trouble. Especially when that wife is the enchanting Reri Grist. Fernando Corena sings the matrimonially inclined title hero, whose plan to disinherit his nephew--the suave, mesmerizing Alfredo Kraus--backfires with more than a little help from Tom Krause's Dr. Malatesta
L'elisir d'amore by Gaetano Donizetti( )

2 editions published in 1972 in Italian and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Enchanting" might the best word to describe Donizetti's delightful, tune-filled, and touching comedy. The marvelous Carlo Bergonzi is Nemorino, a simple, good-hearted farmer, in love with the beautiful, capricious--and wealthy--Adina (Renato Scotto), who hardly knows he even exists. She is much more taken with the flashy good looks and superficial charms of Sergeant Belcore (Mario Sereni). Enter the clever quack Dr. Dulcamara (Fernando Corena), who's peddling cheap Bordeaux wine as a mystical love potent. But Nemorino's affection for Adina is honest and sincere, and since this is a comic opera, everything ends just the way it should
L'assedio di Corinto by Gioacchino Rossini( Recording )

1 edition published in 1998 in Italian and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A few weeks before this performance, Beverly Sills made her Met debut in this all-but-unknown Rossini opera. As one critic explained, "The arias are vocal extravaganzas that would terrorize all but a few singers today." But as Pamira, the young Greek woman who loves the Turkish leader, Maometto (Justino Díaz), who conquers Corinth with tragic consequences, Sills herself was really the conquering hero. "Perfectly phrased abandon," was one description of her singing, and the audience simply went berserk. Shirley Verrett co-stars in the pants role of Neocle, the young Greek captain who has been promised Pamira in marriage

3 editions published in 1988 in Italian and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'Italiana in Algeri by Gioacchino Rossini( Recording )

9 editions published between 1968 and 2002 in Italian and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James Levine on the podium brings an ideal blend of sparkle and lyricism to Rossini's enchanting comedy. Olga Borodina is Isabella, the Italian girl who ends up in Algiers as she searches for her lost lover, Lindoro, sung by the sensational Juan Diego Flórez. Ferruccio Furlanetto is Mustafà, the Bey of Algiers, who keeps Lindoro prisoner and decides to make Isabella his own wife--even though he is already married to Elvira (Lyubov Petrova). Earle Patriarco is Taddeo and Mariusz Kwiecien sings the pirate captain Haly
