Norma by Vincenzo Bellini( Recording )

94 editions published between 1962 and 2006 in 6 languages and held by 889 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Norma may be the most challenging soprano role in all of Italian opera. Only the very greatest have the technical mastery and vocal acumen to convey all the facets of this virtuosic part. With this legendary cast, everything comes together in this bel canto masterpiece. Joan Sutherland's ravishingly beautiful voice can do anything Bellini's spectacular vocal line requires. As Norma's friend Adalgisa, Marilyn Horne proves that mezzos can sing as gloriously as sopranos. Together they sent audiences into a frenzy. Add poetic Carlo Bergonzi as the man they both love and rich-voiced Cesare Siepi as Norma's father, and you have one of the all time great broadcasts
Il barbiere di Siviglia by Gioacchino Rossini( )

34 editions published between 1973 and 2009 in 6 languages and held by 743 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With a cast like this you can't help falling in love all over again with The barber of Seville. The marvelous Hermann Prey is Figaro, a guy you wouldn't buy a used car from, but he's great to have on your side considering he can charm anyone out of anything. The sensational Marilyn Horne (Rosina) and Enrico Di Giuseppe (a love-struck Count Almaviva) immediately enlist him in their quest to foil Fernando Corena (Dr. Bartolo) so they can marry. With James Levine conducting, it's all just sensational

Carmen by Georges Bizet( Recording )

67 editions published between 1973 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 681 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Carmen is enticing, irresistible, and devastatingly fatal. Men can't resist her, but she refuses to be tied down. In Bizet's ever-popular opera, this leads to broken hearts, jealousy--and death. The composer expresses every nuance of the riveting title character in her music, and seldom has it been as superbly sung as the great Marilyn Horne does here. She is earthy, erotic, dangerous, and unforgettable. James McCracken is an explosive Don José, the poor soldier who gives up everything for Carmen, only to lose her in the end and seal his own fate
Le prophète; [opera in five acts by Giacomo Meyerbeer( Recording )

85 editions published between 1970 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 669 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
Mignon by Ambroise Thomas( Recording )

36 editions published between 1970 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 608 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this performance, the sensational Risë Stevens sings one of her signature roles, the shy but loving Mignon. It's a true operatic rarity, not heard at the Met since Stevens last did it in 1949, and it overflows with astonishing musical variety. The opera has at least two roles dear to the hearts of great singing actors: Mignon, and old Lothario, who turns out to be her father - here the superb Ezio Pinza in a stellar performance. Mimi Benzell is the flirtatious Philine, and James Melton is Wilhelm Meister, Mignon's true love

Ferruccio Furlanetto is Mustafà, the Bey of Algiers, who keeps Lindoro prisoner and decides to make Isabella his own wife--even though he is already married to Elvira (Lyubov Petrova). Earle Patriarco is Taddeo and Mariusz Kwiecien sings the pirate captain Haly

Ford's wife Alice (Phyllis Curtin) is being wooed by Falstaff (Ezio Flagello) who is also interested in Meg Page (Mildred Miller). Fortunately Dame Quickly (Fedora Barbieri) is a match for Falstaff and teaches him a lesson
