7 editions published between 1988 and 1999 in French and held by 11 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

The young Leonie Rysanek triumphs in her second Met broadcast of the almost four dozen she would do during her astonishing career. Here she is Elizabeth of Valois, married to King Philip II of Spain (Jerome Hines), even though she loves his son, Don Carlo (Giulio Gari). Rysanek's heartbreaking performance fully connects with Elizabeth's passion and despair. Beloved baritone Robert Merrill is Don Carlo's friend, Roderigo, killed by the Inquisition.

Otello by Giuseppe Verdi ( Recording )

The story: Act I. The action unfolds on Cyprus, under Venetian rule in the 16th century. The scene is outside the castle, residence of Otello, governor of the island, facing the port. It is night. A furious storm churns the sea, and a crowd of Venetian citizens and soldiers helplessly watch while the ship of the Moor Otello desperately tries to make it into port. Only Iago, one of Otello's men, does not participate in the general apprehension for the safety of his leader: he hates Otello, because Otello has promoted Cassio captain instead of him; he meditates revenge. The crowd is jubilant as Otello finally lands safely and announces that the Turkish fleet has been defeated. When the Moor enters the castle, the fireworks start and all drink to his victory. In the midst of the rejoicing, Iago starts to weave the scheme that will lead to his commander's downfall: he treacherously insinuates to Roderigo, who had revealed to Iago his love for Otello's wife, Desdemona, that Captain Cassio also feels the same affection for the woman. Then Iago gets Cassio drunk, and incites a fight between the two men, but the dangerous duel that starts between them is stopped by Montano. However, the peacemaker is wounded by Cassio. Iago sounds the alarm, swelling the episode out of proportion until the crowd is in tumult. Called back by the shouts and noise, Otello, falsely informed by Iago, punishes Cassio and demotes him. This is a first victory for Iago, who exults
Così fan tutte by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart ( Recording )
8 editions published between 1988 and 2000 in Italian and German and held by 8 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
Come away with me by Norah Jones ( Recording )
6 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Die phänomenale Erfolgsstory von Norah Jones' Debut-Album mit weltweit rund 20 Millionen verkauften Exemplaren lief eigentlich allen geltenden Marketing-Strategien des frühen 21. Jahrhunderts entgegen. -- Entscheidend war für einmal nicht ein Mega-Werbebudget, sondern viel kostenlose Mundzumundpropaganda mit extremer Langzeitwirkung. Ein halbes Jahr nach der Veröffentlichung war in den USA im August 2002 die erste Million geschafft - als die Kunde endlich auch bei uns zu greifen begann. <<Come away with me>> stand in der Folge bis September 2005 während total 132 Wochen in der Schweizer Hitparade. -- Dahinter steckte eine komplexe Kombination verschiedenster Faktoren. Ihre als natürlich, ehrlich und ungekünstelt empfundene Musik zwischen Jazz, Pop, Soul, Folk und Country wurde speziell von einem älteren Publikum quasi als Erlösung vom herrschenden Zeitgeist der digitalen, elektronischen Musikwelt ins Herz geschlossen - umso mehr, als die sanften, traditionellen Töne von einer attraktiven, blutjungen 23-jährigen Frau ohne Star-Allüren kam. Aber als Tochter der indischen Sitar-Legende Ravi Shankar dafür mit einer exotischen Herkunft. -- Norah Jones war damit auch die Vorreiterin einer neuen <<Jazz>>-Welle mit Namen wie Jamie Cullum oder Katie Melua. Dazu kam die willkommene <<Dreingabe>> von fünf Grammies. (Quelle: http://www.drs.ch/www/de/drs/themen/musik/pop-rock-musik/4968.50-meisterwerke.html, 16.10.2008)

Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg by Richard Wagner ( Recording )
5 editions published between 1990 and 1999 in German and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Not many companies have the resources to put on Wagner's only comedy with all the élan it deserves. The Met does, particularly when Music Director James Levine is conducting: his affection for the work is matched only by his skill at bringing it to life. Levine leads a top-flight cast of solo singers, plus a huge chorus and orchestra. James Morris conveys all of Hans Sachs wisdom, and humanity; Karita Mattila sparkles as Eva, the young woman in love with Walther, the impetuous knight, ardently sung by Ben Heppner
