Siegfried by Richard Wagner( Recording )
35 editions published between 1937 and 2013 in German and Undetermined and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is one of the legendary performances from the Met's vast archive of historic broadcasts. The incomparable Lauritz Melchior stars in the title role of the young hero who sets out to explore the world--killing the fierce dragon Fafner (Eduard Habich) and the evil dwarf Mime (Karl Laufkötter) along the way. When Wotan (the great Friedrich Schorr) tries to stop him, Siegfried uses his sword to break the god's spear and makes his way to the sleeping Brünnhilde (a radiant Kirsten Flagstad). He awakens her with a kiss--and sets in motion the events that, in the following opera, will bring about the end of the world. Kerstin Thorborg co-stars as Erda and Artur Bodanzky conducts
Die Walküre by Richard Wagner( Recording )
42 editions published between 1940 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In her only pre-World War II Met broadcast of Die Walküre, the incomparable Kirsten Flagstad gives a magisterial performance as Brünnhilde, the warrior maiden and favorite daughter of Wotan, lord of the gods, sung by the marvelous Julius Huehn. Lauritz Melchior as Siegmund and Marjorie Lawrence as Sieglinde are a Wälsung couple for the ages, and Karin Branzell is magnificent as Fricka, Wotan's wife. Twenty-eight-year-old Erich Leinsdorf leads this dramatic performance of the Ring cycle's second chapter. This performance is taken from the CD box set Wagner at The Met, released by Sony Classical

"Peter Konwitschny's Tristan und Isolde proves to be refreshingly controversial in its interpretation of this grand classic. In his hands, the towering Wagner opera becomes an optimistic work about two people who succeed in finding love." -- Container
