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
Il trovatore by Giuseppe Verdi( )

30 editions published between 1987 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 892 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Enrico Caruso famously said that putting on Trovatore was easy: the only thing needed were the four best singers in the world. Few people would take issue with the sensational cast of this broadcast: The radiant superstar Joan Sutherland, in her last operatic appearance at the Met, is Leonora, the young woman loved by two men--the outlaw Manrico (Luciano Pavarotti in spectacular form), and the noble but sinister Count di Luna (commanding Verdi baritone Leo Nucci). Between them, and at the center of the drama, stands the mysterious gypsy Azucena (the late, great Shirley Verrett), whose actions years before throw a long shadow over the protagonists' lives

Superstar Luciano Pavarotti left his indelible mark on some of the greatest roles in the tenor repertoire--including Verdi's Duke of Mantua, one of opera's ultimate bad boys. In this performance, Pavarotti's trademark honeyed tone and suave phrasing are paired with the innocence of June Anderson's Gilda (in the soprano's Met debut season and role). Leo Nucci is the tragic jester Rigoletto who sees his life and all his plans ruined
