Roméo et Juliette by Charles Gounod( Recording )

36 editions published between 1998 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 511 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No one ever doubted the handsome, charismatic Italian tenor Franco Corelli was the personification of the romantic hero. So what better role for him than Roméo, the impetuous youth who defies his family, and his city, to follow where his heart leads? Corelli's ardor knows no bounds in his quest for Juliette (the sparkling Judith Blegen). This performance leaves no doubt that even though Roméo and Juliette are young, they are truly, profoundly in love
Manon by Jules Massenet( Recording )

Who can resist the charms of Manon or remain unmoved by her fate? Ruth Ann Swenson takes on Massenet's title heroine, the equally beautiful and high-spirited young girl who turns her back on life in a convent when she meets the handsome des Grieux (Giuseppe Sabbatini)--only to be seduced by the promise of a luxurious existence as the mistress of the rich old Brétigny (Kim Josephson). 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

Werther [A lyric drama in four acts and five tableaux ; libretto by Edouard Blau, Paul Milliet, and Georges Hartmann, after Goethe] by Jules Massenet( )

25 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Werther is one of the iconic figures in literature, an innocent young man who feels nature deeply and loves unreservedly. In Massenet's alluring operatic version, Alfredo Kraus magnificently captures every nuance of this complex character--his aristocratic bearing and pure soul, his anguish that the only woman he can love is promised to another man, and finally the despair that leads to his suicide. Frederica von Stade sings Charlotte, the woman who returns Werther's feelings but honors her promise to someone else. Dawn Upshaw is a sparkling Sophie, Charlotte's younger sister

L'elisir d'amore by Gaetano Donizetti( Recording )

45 editions published between 1993 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 312 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
