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

97 editions published between 1951 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hearing either Jon Vickers or Christa Ludwig, two of the most riveting singing actors of their time, in Parsifal would be cause for celebration. This recording presents both of these great artists in their only joint broadcast of Wagner's mystical opera, with James Levine bringing his own special magic to the occasion, making it indeed a Parsifal for the ages. Martti Talvela is an authoritative, compassionate Gurnemanz and Bernd Weikl a memorable Amfortas
Tristan und Isolde by Richard Wagner( Recording )

56 editions published between 1966 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg by Richard Wagner( Recording )

50 editions published between 1952 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 72 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 )

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

This broadcast of Wagner's most romantic opera stars René Kollo as the knight of the Holy Grail who arrives in a boat pulled by a swan to defend the innocent Elsa, played by Pilar Lorengar. Mignon Dunn is the dark and malevolent Ortrud who poisons the couple's happiness, with some help from her husband, Telramund (Donald McIntyre). James Levine leads the Met orchestra, bringing out the shimmer and the thunder of the score, along with every shade of expression in between

Among Wagner's mature operas, this is the only comedy. It is based on a true story of the guild of Meistersingers (Master singers). The town goldsmith announces that the winner of the Midsummer's Day song contest will win his daughter, but must also be or become a Mastersinger. The cobbler Hans Sachs (an actual historical figure) helps Walther compose a Mastersong with which to defeat his rival Beckmesser and win Eva
