Most widely held works by Nicolai Gedda
Carmen by Georges Bizet( )

218 editions published between 1959 and 2019 in 8 languages and held by 2,952 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Esta versión de Carmen, es sin duda alguna maravilla. Las cualidades vocales de MVictoria de los Angeles, así como la interpretación desarrollada, la dirección orquestal y coral logradas, no son fáciles de encontrar en registros actuales. Por tanto es la mejor forma de conocer a Carmen. Como Carmen, Victoria De Los Ángeles da a oyente un cuadro claro de una mujer que sabe lo que desea y no tiene que gritar para conseguirlo. Ella tiene una voz excelente y se supera en una apasionada escena de muerte. Nicolai Gedda ofrece un magnífico Don José ; él es uno de los pocos tenores que canta el dúo con Micaela con verdadera dulzura

59 editions published between 1958 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 1,497 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jan-Hendrik Rootering is La Roche, the temperamental theater director whose troupe entertains the Countess. Wolfgang Brendel is her brother, the Count, and Kathryn Harries sings the actress Clairon.

Faust by Charles Gounod( Recording )

40 editions published between 1953 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 1,233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Going back in time and doing it over differently is one of the oldest fantasies in the book. In this opera the elderly philosopher Faust (a suave and stylish Niccolai Gedda in his debut season and role) gets just that chance, and in the twinkling of a devilish eye he is young, handsome, and smitten with the lovely Marguerite (sung by Hilde Güden at her most delectable). Of course the devil always gets his due, and in the end, Méphistophélès, here portrayed by Jerome Hines, wins Faust's immortal. Robert Merrill is Marguerite's unfortunate brother, Valentin, who sings one of the best-known tunes in all of opera
Die Fledermaus by Johann Strauss( Recording )

87 editions published between 1955 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 1,164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Die Fledermaus" er en kjent og kjær forestilling som ble en stor triumf for komponisten etter premieren i Wien i 1875. Da hadde Johann Strauss den yngre brukt bare seks uker på å skrive den, og han var for alltid "valsekongen" etter dette. Forestillingen er en forviklingskomedie der misforståelser og komikk blir rullet ut til tonene av Strauss’ medrivende og innsmigrende musikk. Utgivelsen inneholder også et hefte med librettoen til operetten
Elijah by Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy( )

51 editions published between 1968 and 2005 in 5 languages and held by 1,115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An oratorio after words from the Old Testament, Op. 70
Vanessa by Samuel Barber( )

67 editions published between 1957 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 1,112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This broadcast, recorded just two weeks after Vanessa's Met world premiere, presents the original cast in spectacular form. Eleanor Steber is marvelous as the title heroine, a beautiful woman awaiting the return of her long-lost lover. But the man who arrives is his son, Anatol (a suave Nicolai Gedda). The handsome youth plays a dangerous emotional game of wooing both Vanessa and her niece Erika (an enchanting Rosalind Elias)--with devastating consequences. Regina Resnik stars as the Old Baroness and Giorgio Tozzi is the kind Doctor. Conductor Dimitri Mitropoulos gives an impassioned reading of Barber's superb score
Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk by Dmitriĭ Dmitrievich Shostakovich( Recording )

60 editions published between 1979 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 1,088 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The tale of Katerina Ismailova, who is trapped in a loveless marriage. The action takes place in Mtsensk immediately before the Russian Revolution of 1917. In the tradition of "Anna Karenina" and "Madame Bovary" Katerina's fatalistic pusuit of passion has disasterous results
Candide by Leonard Bernstein( Recording )

41 editions published between 1991 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 1,058 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Caustic and hilarious, Candide has ranked as one of the world's great satires since its first publication in 1759. It concerns the adventures of the youthful Candide, disciple of Dr. Pangloss. In the course of his travels in Europe and South America, Candide sees and suffers such misfortune that it is difficult for him to believe that this is "the best of all possible worlds," as Dr. Pangloss has assured him. Indeed, it seems to be quite the opposite. In brilliantly skewering such naivete, Voltaire mercilessly exposes and satirizes romance, science, philosophy, religion, and government-the ideas and forces that permeate and control the lives of men. After many trials and travails, Candide is reunited with Cunegonde, his sweetheart. He then buys a little farm in Turkey where he and Cunegonde, Dr. Pangloss, and others retire. In the end, Candide decides that the best thing in the world is to cultivate one's own garden

Manon by Jules Massenet( Recording )

55 editions published between 1963 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 924 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For Manon I could have given up my hopes of heaven itself," declares her lover des Grieux--after utterly ruining himself for her and following her into a destitute exile in an alien country. In Massenet's adaptation of Abbé Prévost's novel, Anna Moffo is a perfect Manon--beautiful, enticing, and offering the promise of pleasure that makes everything else fade into insignificance. The great Nicolai Gedda sings her enthralled lover. Thomas Schippers conducts the glittering, sumptuous score that brings to life the story from its heady beginning to its heart-wrenching end
Les contes d'Hoffmann by Jacques Offenbach( )

56 editions published between 1959 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 922 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Who could resist the tales of Hoffmann when ardent-voiced tenor Nicolai Gedda as the title hero of Offenbach's opera spins them? Combining dark German romanticism with scintillating music, the stories tell of the poet's ill-fated relationships with four women. Gedda is paired with the great singing actor George London as his constant nemesis. Jean Morel conducts this French masterpiece
Eugene Onegin by Pjotr Iljitsj Tsjaikovski( )

34 editions published between 1990 and 2009 in 7 languages and held by 920 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Esta ópera es un ejemplo bien conocido de ópera lírica; el libreto sigue muy estrechamente el original de Pushkin, conservando gran parte de su poesía, a la que Tchaikovsky añade música de naturaleza dramática. La historia se refiere a un héroe egoísta que vive lo suficiente para lamentar su displicente rechazo del amor de una joven y su descuidada incitación a un duelo fatal con su mejor amigo.Reparto: Renée Fleming, Elena Zaremba, Mikhail Baryshnikov, Dmitri Hvorostovsky, Keith Miller, Ramón Vargas
