L'elisir d'amore by Gaetano Donizetti( )

39 editions published between 1993 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 859 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This performance showcases Luciano Pavarotti at his magnificent best. The role of good hearted Nemorino might have been written just for him. Hopelessly in love with wealthy Adina (Kathleen Battle), Nemorino watches, helpless, as flashy Sergeant Belcore (Gino Quilico) seems to win her heart. Enter Dr. Dulcamara (Paul Plishka). He's a quack, but Nemorino believes that the love potion Dulcamara is peddling will help him win Adina's love. It's only a bottle of plain old Bordeaux, but never underestimate the power of true love -- or of Luciano Pavarotti's seductive tenor

When she learns that des Grieux, desperate she has left him, is about to take holy orders, she changes her mind--but it is too late, and their love story ends in tragedy

Fiesque : opéra en 3 actes by Édouard Lalo( )

18 editions published in 2011 in 3 languages and held by 498 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Faithful to his wish to bring back to life French operas that have either been forgotten or are rarely performed, Roberto Alagna recorded this version of Edouard Lalo's opera Fiesque in 2006 at Montpellier. Context: Edouard Lalo denounced the political hypocrisy of the Second Empire early on; for him, Napoleon 'le petit' was an usurper. Inspired by Schiller's Die Verschwörung des Fiesco zu Genua (1782), which rewrites an historical fact with 16th-century Genoa as a setting, in this work Lalo explicitly develops his political conception, which is clearly a republican manifesto. With Charles Beauquier, Lalo condenses Schiller's drama, reducing it from five to three acts, readapting the characters, and simplifying the action. But the main subject, faithful to Schiller's design, remains the defence of freedoms
