Così fan tutte by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart ( Recording )
1 edition published in 1985 in Italian and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
For a long time, Così fan tutte was considered scandalous. Which is not entirely surprising if you look at its story of two sisters (Maria Ewing and Pilar Lorengar) who jump from grief over their fiancés going off to war to agreeing to marry two attractive strangers (David Rendall and Lenus Carlson) within the space of a couple days. Except the strangers are in fact the fiancés in disguise, and the whole thing is a plot masterminded by a cynical old philosopher (Donald Gramm) and a clever maid (Kathleen Battle). Scandalous or not, Così fan tutte has remained one of opera's most contemporary comedies--especially when conducted masterfully by James Levine

Idomeneo by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart ( Recording )
19 editions published between 1980 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The great Plácido Domingo gives a tour-de-force performance in the title role of the King of Crete--a man caught in a desperate trap of his own making. To survive a storm at sea he has made an oath that now forces him to sacrifice the life of his beloved son, Idamante (sung by an aristocratic Anne Sofie von Otter). Dawn Upshaw is Ilia, the captured Trojan princess who has fallen in love with Idamante--much to the fury of Elettra (the sensational Carol Vaness) who wants the prince for herself. James Levine conducts the Met Orchestra in a passionate account of Mozart's magnificent score

Dialogues des Carmélites by Francis Poulenc ( )
4 editions published between 1992 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The tragic fate of the nuns of the Carmelite convent at Copiègne during the French Revolution inspired one of Francis Poulenc's most personal works, and one of the most profoundly moving operas in the repertoire. At its center is Isabel Leonard as Blanche de la Force, a shy young aristocratic woman who joins the order on the eve of the Revolution, flees when the sisters, forced to leave their convent, take a vow of martyrdom, and is finally reunited with them as they face death by the guillotine. Felicity Palmer is Madame de Croissy, Patricia Racette is Madame Lidoine, and Elizabeth Bishop is Mother Marie. Paul Appleby and David Pittsinger co-star as Blanche's brother and father
