Most widely held works by Angela Gheorghiu
Manon by Jules Massenet( )

32 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 836 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Massenet had a special gift for creating beguiling female characters that audiences can never get enough of--and that great sopranos long to perform. For many opera lovers, the enchanting but destructive Manon counts among his greatest achievements. Certainly Renée Fleming in the title role gives a dazzling tour de force: she's equally at home with Manon's spectacular coloratura singing and the gripping, overwhelming passion the character has for Des Grieux (Massimo Giordano)

L'elisir d'amore by Gaetano Donizetti( )

28 editions published between 1997 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 745 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

La traviata by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

45 editions published between 1994 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 638 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There's a good reason La traviata is one of the best-known, and best-loved, operas of all time. Verdi's exquisite music conveys every bit of emotion felt by the gorgeous, successful Parisian courtesan Violetta (Angela Gheorghiu). From the frenzy of her pleasure-filled life, to the suddenness with which she falls in love with handsome young Alfredo (Jonas Kaufmann in his Met debut season and role), to the heart-rending decision to leave him for the sake of his family--Verdi's opera tells of true love, taken to its altruistic, poignant height. Anthony Michaels-Moore is Alfredo's manipulative father, Germont

Puccini's touching story of young love in a 19th century Parisian garret never fails to move audiences or attract top-flight singers.

This cast is headed by two brilliant artists reprising the roles in which they made their Met debuts: ardent tenor Richard Leech as the romantic Rodolfo and radiant soprano Angela Gheorghiu as the tender Mimì.
