La Bohème by Giacomo Puccini( Recording )

89 editions published between 1952 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 1,793 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

Falstaff by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

Verdi's last work is his only major comedy and one of his crowning glories. 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 )

61 editions published between 1960 and 2009 in 5 languages and held by 441 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

La Gioconda by Amilcare Ponchielli( Recording )

30 editions published between 1960 and 2002 in 5 languages and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ponchielli's tuneful drama is brought to thrilling life by an all-star dream cast: Eileen Farrell sings the title role of the street singer who is in love with Enzo, played by legendary tenor Franco Corelli. 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
