Simon Boccanegra by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )
35 editions published between 1958 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 456 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The role of Simon Boccanegra is one of the capstones of Verdi's baritone repertoire. Sherrill Milnes gives a stunning portrayal of the 14th century Genoa doge, singing with both power and poetry, and reminding everyone why audiences acclaimed him the great American Verdi baritone of the day. Anna Tomowa-Sintow is Amelia, his long-lost daughter, in love with one of Boccanegra's most bitter political enemies. James Levine reveals his passion for Verdi's score, bringing out all the drama while reveling in its aching lyricism
Don Carlo by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

The young Leonie Rysanek triumphs in her second Met broadcast of the almost four dozen she would do during her astonishing career. Here she is Elizabeth of Valois, married to King Philip II of Spain (Jerome Hines), even though she loves his son, Don Carlo (Giulio Gari). Rysanek's heartbreaking performance fully connects with Elizabeth's passion and despair. Beloved baritone Robert Merrill is Don Carlo's friend, Roderigo, killed by the Inquisition. Blanche Thebom is Princess Eboli and future superstar Martina Arroyo is heard in her Met debut role as the Celestial Voice

I vespri siciliani by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )
44 editions published between 1951 and 2012 in Italian and Undetermined and held by 224 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
Ernani [opera in four acts] by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )
28 editions published between 1957 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Who better than the great Luciano Pavarotti to play Ernani, Verdi's Spanish nobleman forced to become an outlaw. His true love is Elvira (Leona Mitchell) who wants only to be with him. But there are other men who desire her. One is Sherrill Milnes, in one of his most memorable roles as Don Carlo, the king who is elected Emperor Charles V. Another is her legal guardian, Don Ruy Gomez de Silva, played by Ruggero Raimondi--who gives her to Ernani, only to then demand his life to satisfy his honor. James Levine conducts
