Siegfried by Richard Wagner( )

1 edition published in 2013 in German and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is one of the legendary performances from the Met's vast archive of historic broadcasts. The incomparable Lauritz Melchior stars in the title role of the young hero who sets out to explore the world--killing the fierce dragon Fafner (Eduard Habich) and the evil dwarf Mime (Karl Laufkötter) along the way. When Wotan (the great Friedrich Schorr) tries to stop him, Siegfried uses his sword to break the god's spear and makes his way to the sleeping Brünnhilde (a radiant Kirsten Flagstad). He awakens her with a kiss--and sets in motion the events that, in the following opera, will bring about the end of the world. Kerstin Thorborg co-stars as Erda and Artur Bodanzky conducts
Elektra by Richard Strauss( )

1 edition published in 2009 in German and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Susan Bullock takes on one of opera's most challenging roles as the title heroine of Strauss's powerful drama, based on the ancient Greek myth of murder and revenge. Deborah Voigt reprises her acclaimed portrayal of Chrysothemis, Elektra's sister, and Felicity Palmer gives a chilling performance as their mother, Klytämnestra. Evgeny Nikitin is Orest, the long-lost brother whose return brings events to a deadly climax, and Wolfgang Schmidt sings Aegisth. Met Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi leads this massive score
