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. Blanche Thebom is Princess Eboli and future superstar Martina Arroyo is heard in her Met debut role as the Celestial Voice
Faust by Charles Gounod( Recording )

39 editions published between 1966 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 1,528 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

René Pape's swaggering Mephistophélès is as seductive as it is demonic in this story of Faust (Roberto Alagna) who sells his soul to the devil to reclaim his youth. Wasting no time, Faust falls in love with Marguerite (Solie Isokoski) but things soon begin to go horribly wrong. Her brother (Dmitri Hvorostovvsky) is murdered, she goes insane, and Faust is dragged to hell. But the music is unforgettable

Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti( Recording )

83 editions published between 1972 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 1,169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is Maria Callas's only broadcast from the stage of the Met. Hearing "La Divina" in an actual performance is a unique thrill, and Lucia is a huge part of the palpable Callas mystique. Donizetti's bloody tale of the Scottish lass torn from her true love and forced into an arranged marriage, only to go mad and murder her bridegroom on their wedding night, was the perfect vehicle for Callas's wizardry. Her haunting voice simply becomes Lucia's--every facet of emotion so pronounced that we cannot escape her spell

The action takes place in ancient Egypt, and tells of the love of Radames, the captain of the guard, for a slave girl, Aida. She is the daughter of the King of Ethiopia, who is captured by Radames and the Egyptian troops. Tricked into betraying military secrets, Radames is condemned to be buried alive. He is joined by Aida, who dies with him
La Gioconda by Amilcare Ponchielli( )

59 editions published between 1981 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 912 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With Renata Tebaldi wringing every bit of drama out of the title role, there are plenty of opportunities for goose bumps here. Add to that Carlo Bergonzi's glowing portrayal of the Enzo, the man she loves and the impassioned Fiorenza Cossotto as the woman he loves, plus one jealous husband (Bonaldo Giaiotti), and an Inquisition spy (Cornell MacNeil) bent on revenge, and you have operatic extravagance at its wonderful best, all set in romantic, mysterious 17th century Venice
Eugene Onegin by Pëtr I Čajkovskij( )

46 editions published between 1975 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 880 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A number of acclaimed sopranos have appeared as Tatiana, the heroine of Tchaikovsky's passionate coming-of-age masterpiece, at the Met, with the supple-voiced soprano Mirella Freni, celebrated for her mastery of the Italian and French repertoire, appearing in the role 11 times during her Met career--including in this unforgettable performance conducted by maestro Seiji Ozawa. She stars alongside an ensemble of favorite Met artists, including tenor Jerry Hadley as the idealistic poet Lenski and bass Nicolai Ghiaurov as Tatiana's dignified husband, Prince Gremin. And, having made his Met debut only days earlier, Russian baritone Sergei Leiferkus completes the cast as the self-assured title character, who discovers too late his great love for Tatiana

I puritani by Vincenzo Bellini( Recording )

40 editions published between 1975 and 1988 in 6 languages and held by 727 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When this production opened, it had been more than half a century since Met audiences had last heard Bellini's gem of an opera. It was well worth the wait. "The best cast in the world," was how one critic described the legendary performers the Met brought together. The pair sent audiences into a frenzy with their sumptuous, dazzling singing. Joan Sutherland, dubbed "La Stupenda" by her fans and the press, is the hapless heroine Elvira who loses her heart--and her sanity--over Luciano Pavarotti, the Cavalier hero torn between love and duty
Turandot : highlights by Giacomo Puccini( )

34 editions published between 1973 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 726 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
