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

37 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 1,091 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
Madama Butterfly by Giacomo Puccini( )

22 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 1,000 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Angela Gheorghiu has long cherished an ambition to record one of Puccini's best-loved roles; that of Cio-Cio-San, the Japanese 'Butterfly' who will eventually be broken. Antonia Pappano unites his starry soloists and native Italian forces to produce a stunning and sonsummately idiomatic 'Butterfly' for the 21st century."--Container

L'elisir d'amore by Gaetano Donizetti( )

32 editions published between 1997 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 747 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

Anna Christy is Magda's feisty maid Lisette and Marius Brenciu sings the poet Prunier

46 editions published between 1994 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 635 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
