Der fliegende Holländer by Richard Wagner( Recording )

9 editions published between 1989 and 2015 in German and No Linguistic content and held by 313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wagner's early opera features a title role that has tempted many great bass-baritones to put their stamp on. James Morris is a singing actor able to convey the rich drama of the part while making it sound easy, thrilling audiences with the sheer power of his voice. James Levine's authoritative leadership of the Met Orchestra and Chorus adds immeasurably to the excitement of the performance. This broadcast stars Mechthild Gessendorf as Senta, the woman who will die for the doomed Dutchman, and Paul Plishka as her father, Daland
I vespri siciliani [opera in 5 acts] by Giuseppe Verdi( )

3 editions published in 1999 in Italian and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Verdi's gripping tale of Sicilians rising against the occupying French stars Renata Scotto in her only broadcast of this rarely heard masterpiece. From the beginning of the opera, when Elena (Scotto) sings an "innocent" song fanning the people's resentment against the foreign army, to the end, when the ringing of her wedding bells signals the start of the revolt, Scotto's artistry blazes. James Levine leads the Met Orchestra and Chorus in a wonderfully idiomatic performance, and Ruggero Raimondi is magnificent as Procida, the outlawed Sicilian leader
