Michele Pertusi is Count Rodolfo, and Marco Armiliato conducts Bellini's melodious score

La Gioconda by Amilcare Ponchielli( )

18 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With Renata Tebaldi wringing every bit of drama out of the title role, there are plenty of opportunities for goose bumps here. Add to that Carlo Bergonzi's glowing portrayal of the Enzo, the man she loves and the impassioned Fiorenza Cossotto as the woman he loves, plus one jealous husband (Bonaldo Giaiotti), and an Inquisition spy (Cornell MacNeil) bent on revenge, and you have operatic extravagance at its wonderful best, all set in romantic, mysterious 17th century Venice
Il pirata by Vincenzo Bellini( )

9 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in Italian and Undetermined and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bellini's emotion-drenched opera had never been performed at the Met until superstar soprano Renée Fleming revealed its riches to captivated audiences. Gualtiero (Marcello Giodani) is an exiled count, forced to become a pirate. His enemy Ernesto (Dwayne Croft) blackmails Imogene (Fleming) into marrying him, even though he knows she loves Gualtiero. In the searing final scene Imogene goes insane when Gualtiero is condemned to death. This is riveting bel canto drama as you have seldom hear it

Les pêcheurs de perles The pearl fishers = Die Perlenfischer by Georges Bizet( )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in French and Undetermined and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

(Scene: A shore on the island of Ceylon in antiquity) In anticipation of the fishing season, the villagers elect Zurga as their king and prepare their annual vigil to ensure safe seas. Zurga welcomes Nadir, his long-time friend, whom he has not seen since their love for the same woman divided them. They promise eternal friendship and vow never again to allow a woman to come between them. Within moments, a woman arrives, veiled. She will stand through the night, alone on the shore, in ritual prayer. Zurga promises her a priceless pearl if she is chaste in her duty and death if she violates her purity. Nadir recognizes her voice. It is Léïla, the woman he and Zurga loved in the past, and his feelings for her are rekindled . .
Stabat Mater by Giovanni Battista Pergolesi( )

5 editions published in 2004 in Latin and Undetermined and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Opening the disc is Vivaldi's brief Sonata al Santo Sepolcro, an instrumental work probably intended for inclusion in an Easter church service. This is followed by a Stabat Mater proper, also by Vivaldi. Vivaldi used just the first ten verses of the text, creating one of the most sombre of all settings, here performed by the Canadian ensemble Theatre of Early Music and its director, counter-tenor Daniel Taylor, who in Bach is joined by Emma Kirkby, taking on the soprano part
The sonic mind by Lasse Thoresen( )

4 editions published in 1998 in No Linguistic content and Undetermined and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thaïs by Jules Massenet( )

13 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in French and Undetermined and held by 223 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
