Manon by Jules Massenet ( Recording )
10 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in French and German and held by 367 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

Le Comte Ory by Gioacchino Rossini ( Recording )
15 editions published between 1989 and 2005 in 4 languages and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Tenor Juan Diego Flórez gives a sensational performance in the title role of Rossini's rarely heard, gender-bending comedy. Disguised as nuns, Ory and his men gain entrance to the castle of Countess Adèle (Pretty Yende in her Met debut), but the Counts attempts at seduction go comically wrong. Karine Deshayes is Isolier, Ory's page who is also in love with the Countess and determined to beat the Count at his own game. Nathan Gunn sings Raimbaud, Ory's boon companion, and bel canto specialist Maurizio Benini conducts

Così fan tutte by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart ( )
4 editions published between 1998 and 2007 in Italian and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Two sisters whose fiancés have gone off to war (or so they pretend), a clever maid, a cynical old philosopher, and those same two fiancés in disguise--six characters is all it takes for Mozart and his librettist, Lorenzo Da Ponte, to explore both the fun and the heartbreak that love can lead to in this equally lighthearted and deeply human comedy. James Levine masterfully leads a stellar cast that includes Carol Vaness and Tatiana Troyanos as the sisters, Jerry Hadley and Thomas Hampson as their fiancés, Betsy Norden as Despina, and Richard Van Allen as Don Alfonso
Idomeneo by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart ( Visual )
12 editions published in 2009 in Italian and Undetermined and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With his series of distinguished and highly acclaimed Mozart operatic recordings, Rene Jacobs has shown he is the ideal conductor to revive this dazzling composition. The set includes a bonus DVD that details the making of this remarkable recording
