Siegfried by Richard Wagner( )

7 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in German and Undetermined and held by 495 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

Wagner's powerful and wrenching tale of ill-fated love requires a cast of great singing actors, and that's just what this broadcast provides. Jon Vickers and Régine Crespin are the brother and sister who fall rapturously in love, only to be torn apart by death. The legendary Birgit Nilsson sings Brünnhilde, the Valkyrie of the title who is punished by her father (the magnificent Theo Adam as Wotan) for doing what he really wants her to do. Herbert von Karajan conducts his final Met performance

"Acclaim for Robert Lepage's ground-breaking production: A high-tech Ring with a traditional heart (Boston Globe). In Die Walkure, Terfel's Wotan crackled with intensity, incisive diction and gravelly power. Voigt invested energy, feeling and character in every phrase. Kaufmann looked like a young demigod. Westbroek: rich, throbbing and intense: Levine drew exciting, wondrously natural playing from the great Met orchestra (New York Times)"--Container
