Brigitte Fassbaender is a prominent mezzo-soprano known for her acclaimed performances of the standard opera repertoire.

The Makropulos case by Leoš Janáček( Visual )

14 editions published between 1995 and 2013 in Czech and English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Makropulos case focuses on the issue of longevity - the pros and cons of living for 337 years, as happens to the mysterious Emilia Marty, the sexually irresistible prima donna who's seen it all and done it all. Part grotesque human comedy, part profound personal tragedy, Janáček's opera examines the eternal mystery of human existence with uniquely life-enhancing vision

Così fan tutte by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and Italian and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two sisters whose fiancés have gone off to war (or so they pretend), a clever maid, a cynical old philosopher, and those same two fiancés in disguise--six characters is all it takes for Mozart and his librettist, Lorenzo Da Ponte, to explore both the fun and the heartbreak that love can lead to in this equally lighthearted and deeply human comedy. James Levine masterfully leads a stellar cast that includes Carol Vaness and Tatiana Troyanos as the sisters, Jerry Hadley and Thomas Hampson as their fiancés, Betsy Norden as Despina, and Richard Van Allen as Don Alfonso
Lieder of Schumann and Brahms by Victor Braun( Recording )

6 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in 3 languages and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pelléas et Mélisande by Claude Debussy( Recording )

2 editions published between 1995 and 2010 in French and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James Levine's affection for Debussy's masterful score creates a performance rich in orchestral and vocal colors, with all the subtle emotional shifts of the drama vividly brought to life. The magnificent Frederica von Stade is Mélisande, in a production staged for her 25th Met anniversary. Victor Braun and Dwayne Croft are half-brothers Golaud and Pelléas--one Mélisande's husband, the other her lover. Marilyn Horne brings her sumptuous voice to the role of Geneviève, Pelléas and Golaud's mother, and Robert Lloyd is heartbreaking as the blind old king Arkel
