Most widely held works by Opéra de Paris
Dialogues des Carmélites by Francis Poulenc ( Recording )
26 editions published between 1957 and 2012 in French and English and held by 897 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

As a hot-blooded young corporal in the Spanish cavalry stationed near Seville, Don Jose is ordered to arrest Carmen, a young, flirtatious Gypsy woman, for assaulting a co-worker. Greatly charmed by her, Jose allows her to escape. He deserts the army, kills two men on Carmen's account, and takes up a life as a robber and smuggler. He is insanely jealous of Carmen, who is unfaithful to him, and when she refuses to change on his behalf, he kills her and surrenders himself to the authorities
Roméo et Juliette by Charles Gounod ( Recording )
18 editions published between 1954 and 2005 in French and English and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
No one ever doubted the handsome, charismatic Italian tenor Franco Corelli was the personification of the romantic hero. So what better role for him than Roméo, the impetuous youth who defies his family, and his city, to follow where his heart leads? Corelli's ardor knows no bounds in his quest for Juliette (the sparkling Judith Blegen). This performance leaves no doubt that even though Roméo and Juliette are young, they are truly, profoundly in love

Wozzeck by Alban Berg ( Recording )
12 editions published between 1967 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
James Levine, a longtime champion of this groundbreaking work, has conducted every Met performance of Wozzeck since 1974. He brings Berg's revolutionary score to dramatic life in this broadcast, leading an extraordinary cast headed by Christian Boesch and Hildegard Behrens. Boesch gives a heartbreaking performance as the poor, abused soldier of the title, and Behrens is stunning as his faithless and conflicted wife, Marie. Richard Cassilly sings the vain Drum Major who seduces her, and Ragnar Ulfung and Franz Mazura are the Captain and the Doctor, who mock and torture Wozzeck

Thaïs by Jules Massenet ( Recording )
5 editions published in 1952 in French and held by 135 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

The Nureyev production of the ballet was created in 1992, the last production before his death, and restaged in 1994.

Le rossignol by Igor Stravinsky ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2005 in Russian and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Getting into his grandfather's pottery workshop at night, a little boy finds an unusually large vase. Fascinated, the child feels the still-warm material, which - whether by a miracle or the hand of a magician, who knows? - at once changes into a magnificent piece of Chinese porcelain. Presently, from behind the great blue-enamelled trees, there appears a fisherman in his sampan ... That's how the story of The nightingale, told all in music, begins, as the waking dream of a child in the land of Chinese art - and of mobile phones and webcams"--Conteneur
