Most widely held works by Robert Merrill
La traviata by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

164 editions published between 1946 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 2,076 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Verdi's immortal tragedy about the clash of true love with social convention has seldom been as poignant as in this broadcast. The sensational Italian tenor Giuseppe Di Stefano, in his second season at the Met, offers his first Alfredo with the company--a tender, romantic, and gorgeously sung performance that perfectly matches Eleanor Steber's sumptuous and touching Violetta. Robert Merrill, heard here at the beginning of his career, would go on to make the role of Germont one of his calling cards
La Bohème by Giacomo Puccini( Recording )

115 editions published between 1952 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 1,999 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There's a reason La Bohème has been done more often at the Met than any other opera: Puccini's enticing music perfectly conveys the enchantment of young love, and the numbing sorrow of tragic death. The delectable Viennese soprano Hilde Güden is Mimì, the poor seamstress who falls in love with her neighbor Rodolfo (the American tenor Eugene Conley), only to succumb to tuberculosis. The beloved Robert Merrill is the painter Marcello

This performance features the legendary African-American contralto Marian Anderson in her history-making Met debut role of Ulrica, the fortune-teller. At first her predictions are all good news. But who would believe the best friend of the king would actually murder him? Absurd. That's what the king (Jan Peerce) thinks. But he loves Amelia (Zinka Milanov), the wife of his friend Renato (Robert Merrill). And when Renato discovers them together, he joins the plot against the king. This is Verdian passion at its best
Aida by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

73 editions published between 1900 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 989 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Leontyne Price's performance here reminds us why she was the most acclaimed Aida of her time. Grace Bumbry is a fiercely royal Amneris, as passionately in love with Radames (Carlo Bergonzi) as Aida is. But the love triangle is further complicated by two nations at war with each other. And it all comes unraveled when Aida's father (Robert Merrill) forces her to choose between the man she loves and her country. Conductor Thomas Schippers leads this thrilling performance

Judith Raskin and Luigi Alva are the enchanting Fenton and Nannetta who want to be married even though her father, Ford (Frank Guarrera), objects. Ford's wife Alice (Phyllis Curtin) is being wooed by Falstaff (Ezio Flagello) who is also interested in Meg Page (Mildred Miller). Fortunately Dame Quickly (Fedora Barbieri) is a match for Falstaff and teaches him a lesson
Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti( Recording )

60 editions published between 1960 and 2009 in 5 languages and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is Maria Callas's only broadcast from the stage of the Met. Hearing "La Divina" in an actual performance is a unique thrill, and Lucia is a huge part of the palpable Callas mystique. Donizetti's bloody tale of the Scottish lass torn from her true love and forced into an arranged marriage, only to go mad and murder her bridegroom on their wedding night, was the perfect vehicle for Callas's wizardry. Her haunting voice simply becomes Lucia's--every facet of emotion so pronounced that we cannot escape her spell

When Gioconda rejects the advances of the spy Barnaba (the great Robert Merrill), he sets in motion a revenge plot that involves Enzo's beloved, Laura (Nell Rankin), and her husband, Alvise (Giorgio Tozzi), who has murderous intentions of his own. Mignon Dunn is Gioconda's blind mother, La Cieca, and Fausto Cleva conducts
