When a wealthy old bachelor decides to take a pretty young wife, he is--this being opera--in for trouble. Especially when that wife is the enchanting Reri Grist. Fernando Corena sings the matrimonially inclined title hero, whose plan to disinherit his nephew--the suave, mesmerizing Alfredo Kraus--backfires with more than a little help from Tom Krause's Dr. Malatesta

Under James Levine's exuberant and stylish leadership, Mozart's rollicking tale has seldom been such a delight. At the head of the cast is Kurt Moll as the cantankerous harem overseer Osmin. Moll revels in the over-the-top music Mozart wrote to express Osmin's over-the-top emotional jags. Uwe Heilmann (Belmonte) is the Spanish nobleman who must outwit Osmin in order to rescue his beloved Konstanze (Mariella Devia) from the clutches of Pasha Selim (Nico Castel)

Così fan tutte by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( Recording )

22 editions published between 1985 and 1995 in 3 languages and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two sisters whose fiancés have gone off to war (or so they pretend), a clever maid, a cynical old philosopher, and those same two fiancés in disguise--six characters is all it takes for Mozart and his librettist, Lorenzo Da Ponte, to explore both the fun and the heartbreak that love can lead to in this equally lighthearted and deeply human comedy. James Levine masterfully leads a stellar cast that includes Carol Vaness and Tatiana Troyanos as the sisters, Jerry Hadley and Thomas Hampson as their fiancés, Betsy Norden as Despina, and Richard Van Allen as Don Alfonso

Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg by Richard Wagner( )

8 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in German and Undetermined and held by 194 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

Die Schöpfung by Joseph Haydn( Recording )

15 editions published between 1991 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Haydn gave birth to a new type of oratorio that reflected perfectly the spirit of his time. With German texts, direct expression of feelings and many grand choruses, it stood for the transition from the aristocracy to a bourgeois society, in which music-making in a group was seen as an expression of civil pride. Extremely popular with amateur choirs, performances with a large ensemble became the rule until well into the 20th century. And the 1960 Electrola recording represents this tradition, with a top-class trio of soloists consisting of the great Elisabeth Grummer, outstanding tenor Josef Traxel and Gottlob Frick, "the blackest of all bass singers"
Iphigénie en Tauride by Christoph Willibald Gluck( Recording )

21 editions published between 1993 and 2009 in 5 languages and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gluck's deeply moving masterpiece returned to the Met in 2007 after an absence of 90 years, featuring an all-star cast vibrantly conducted by Louis Langrée in his company debut. Oreste, sung by the incomparable Plácido Domingo, is hounded by the furies for murdering his mother. He has been shipwrecked on Tauris where he and his friend Pylade (Paul Groves) are condemned to die at the hands of the priestess Iphigénie (Susan Graham). At the sacrificial altar Oreste and Iphigénie suddenly realize they are brother and sister--and face slaughter by the angry king Thoas (William Shimell)
