Thaïs by Jules Massenet( Recording )

17 editions published between 1952 and 2009 in French and Undetermined and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Take one ascetic monk named Athanaël and one ravishingly beautiful courtesan named Thaïs, add Massenet's sensual, melodious music, with equal dashes of eroticism and religious fervor--and you have a powerful opera that is at once a celebration of the sacred and the profane, of flesh and soul. This rarity had not been heard at the Met for almost 40 years when it was brought back as a vehicle for the great soprano Beverly Sills and the magnetic singing actor Sherrill Milnes. Together, they masterfully bring to life the searing conflict at the heart of the drama

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

Faust by Charles Gounod( Recording )

5 editions published between 1949 and 2001 in French and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Richard Leech in the title role creates a passionate and vivid portrait of the world-weary man who sells his soul to the devil for another chance at life and love--only to discover that true love isn't what he imagined it would be. The extraordinary Renée Fleming is Marguerite, the beautiful, innocent woman Faust ruins, and Dwayne Croft is Valentin, the brother whose death she inadvertently causes. Pulling all the strings behind the scenes and enjoying every minute of it is the incomparable Samuel Ramey as Méphistophélès
