Most widely held works by Bayreuther Festspiele
Parsifal [ein Bühnenweihfestspiel] by Richard Wagner( Recording )

92 editions published between 1951 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wagner's mystical opera makes extraordinary demands on the conductor, but James Levine is renowned for the special affection and authority he brings to this transcendent work. The music shimmers and glows, evoking the legendary world of the Knights of the Holy Grail and the pure fool who brings healing power to the land. Peter Hofmann stars as the questing title hero, Jerome Hines sings the wise old man, Gurnemanz, and Mignon Dunn is the voluptuous Kundry, whose erotic temptations almost ensnare the young hero
Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg by Richard Wagner( Recording )

47 editions published between 1952 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Not many companies have the resources to put on Wagner's only comedy with all the élan it deserves. The Met does, particularly when Music Director James Levine is conducting: his affection for the work is matched only by his skill at bringing it to life. Levine leads a top-flight cast of solo singers, plus a huge chorus and orchestra. James Morris conveys all of Hans Sachs wisdom, and humanity; Karita Mattila sparkles as Eva, the young woman in love with Walther, the impetuous knight, ardently sung by Ben Heppner
Lohengrin by Richard Wagner( Recording )

43 editions published between 1953 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ben Heppner is the Knight of the Holy Grail, sent by heaven to defend pure, innocent Elsa (Deborah Voigt), against the evil slander of Telramund (Hans-Joachim Ketelsen) and his wicked wife. Ortrud (Deborah Polaski). But how can Elsa truly trust her hero, if she's forbidden to even ask his name or where he comes from? Wagner's colorful music blazes under James Levine's conducting, and the Met orchestra and chorus are a thrilling part of the storytelling. This is shimmering Romanticism at its best

Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg by Richard Wagner( Visual )

22 editions published between 1984 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Meistersinger von Nürnburg is the only comedy Wagner ever wrote. It is a parable of art told in terms of a simple human love story. Within the context of middle-class town life the opera symbolises the eternal conflict between the need for change, with Walther at its forefront, and the conservative forces of a too strongly held critical tradition, personified in Beckmesser. Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg has also been interpreted as Wagner's protest against his critics and the public
Tristan und Isolde by Richard Wagner( Recording )

Wagner's revolutionary score changed the world of music with its radical portrayal of an all-consuming passion that can only be fulfilled in death. The legendary Birgit Nilsson sings Isolde, one of her greatest roles, in her second Met season. Karl Liebl is Tristan, the man she loves--and the best friend of the man she is forced to marry. Jerome Hines is the sorrowful King Marke and Irene Dalis sings Isolde's stalwart companion, Brangäne
