Parsifal [ein Bühnenweihfestspiel] by Richard Wagner ( Recording )
23 editions published between 1951 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Wagner's mystical opera makes extraordinary demands on the conductor, but James Levine is renowned for the special affection and authority he brings to this transcendent work. The music shimmers and glows, evoking the legendary world of the Knights of the Holy Grail and the pure fool who brings healing power to the land. Peter Hofmann stars as the questing title hero, Jerome Hines sings the wise old man, Gurnemanz, and Mignon Dunn is the voluptuous Kundry, whose erotic temptations almost ensnare the young hero

Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg by Richard Wagner ( Visual )
4 editions published between 1984 and 2007 in German and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Die Meistersinger von Nürnburg is the only comedy Wagner ever wrote. It is a parable of art told in terms of a simple human love story. Within the context of middle-class town life the opera symbolises the eternal conflict between the need for change, with Walther at its forefront, and the conservative forces of a too strongly held critical tradition, personified in Beckmesser. Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg has also been interpreted as Wagner's protest against his critics and the public
Lohengrin by Richard Wagner ( Recording )
12 editions published between 1976 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This broadcast of Wagner's most romantic opera stars René Kollo as the knight of the Holy Grail who arrives in a boat pulled by a swan to defend the innocent Elsa, played by Pilar Lorengar. Mignon Dunn is the dark and malevolent Ortrud who poisons the couple's happiness, with some help from her husband, Telramund (Donald McIntyre). James Levine leads the Met orchestra, bringing out the shimmer and the thunder of the score, along with every shade of expression in between

Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg by Richard Wagner ( Recording )
13 editions published between 1974 and 2012 in German and Chinese and held by 17 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
