Nabucco by Giuseppe Verdi ( Recording )
52 editions published between 1978 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 528 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is the opera that made Verdi famous overnight, performed here with the all-star cast that introduced the work to the Met shortly before this broadcast. Thomas Schippers' superb conducting galvanized the Met orchestra and chorus, to say nothing of the magnificent soloists, headed by Cornell MacNeil as the Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar, who loses his throne to his demented, scheming daughter, played by a blazing Leonie Rysanek. Majestic bass Cesare Siepi is the high priest Zaccaria. The opera is still a rarity and this rendition is legendary

Le prophète [opera in five acts by Giacomo Meyerbeer ( Recording )
34 editions published between 1976 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Meyerbeer's grand operas once ruled the operatic world, but they're rarities today. With this performance the Met pulled out all the stops to show modern audiences what all the fuss was about. James McCracken is Jean of Lyden, a simple innkeeper who is proclaimed the Prophet and who leads a religious uprising in medieval Holland. During the turmoil he denounces his mother, Fidès (Marilyn Horne at her spectacular best), and his fiancé, Berthe (a passionate Renata Scotto), turns on him. The opera ends catastrophically but is filled with colorful music

With all of France at her feet, she has doubts about the faithfulness of her lover, the handsome military hero Maurizio (Neil Shicoff). To aid his claim for the Saxon throne, Maurizio has been paying court to the Princess di Bouillon (Viorica Cortez). Emotions erupt at a party given by the Princess when Adriana publicly accuses her of adultery. But the Princess gets even by sending Adriana a bouquet of poisoned flowers. The great baritone Mario Sereni is Michonnet, the faithful friend and theater director who is hopelessly in love with Adriana

Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti ( Recording )
57 editions published between 1960 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is Maria Callas's only broadcast from the stage of the Met. Hearing "La Divina" in an actual performance is a unique thrill, and Lucia is a huge part of the palpable Callas mystique. Donizetti's bloody tale of the Scottish lass torn from her true love and forced into an arranged marriage, only to go mad and murder her bridegroom on their wedding night, was the perfect vehicle for Callas's wizardry. Her haunting voice simply becomes Lucia's--every facet of emotion so pronounced that we cannot escape her spell
