Salome by Richard Strauss( Recording )

47 editions published between 1991 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 952 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This performance presents the great Leonie Rysanek in one of her most memorable roles--the teenage Judean princess Salome. Obsessed with the prophet Jochanaan, the Biblical John the Baptist (Norman Bailey), she skillfully manipulates her lecherous stepfather Herod (Ragnar Ulfung) until he has no choice but to have the holy man killed for spurning the princess's advances. The legendary Astrid Varnay is Salome's mother, Herodias. Highlights of the score include the Dance of the Seven Veils and Salome's final monologue, one of the supreme dramatic achievements in all of opera
Don Giovanni by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( Recording )

42 editions published between 1990 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 882 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gerald Finley is the amoral but charismatic Don Giovanni, a man who is fascinated by every woman and whose seductions are legendary. He's also a murderer and a rapist, and this time he has finally gone too far. The ebullient Bryn Terfel is Giovanni's sidekick and servant, Leporello, who keeps the Don's book of conquests up to date and aids him in his shenanigans. Marina Rebeka and Ellie Dehn also star as Donna Anna and Donna Elvira, women Giovanni has crossed and who now want vengeance. Matthew Polenzani is the understanding Don Ottavio, and Isabel Leonard is Zerlina, the peasant girl who keeps slipping out of the Don's grasp at the last minute. It's up to James Morris as the Commendatore to bring Don Giovanni to justice from beyond the grave. Andrew Davis conducts
