Tristan & Isolde by Richard Wagner( Recording )
3 editions published between 1991 and 2001 in German and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Peter Konwitschny's Tristan und Isolde proves to be refreshingly controversial in its interpretation of this grand classic. In his hands, the towering Wagner opera becomes an optimistic work about two people who succeed in finding love." -- Container

Salome by Richard Strauss( Recording )
13 editions published between 1970 and 1999 in German and Undetermined and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This performance presents the great Leonie Rysanek in one of her most memorable roles--the teenage Judean princess Salome. Obsessed with the prophet Jochanaan, the Biblical John the Baptist (Norman Bailey), she skillfully manipulates her lecherous stepfather Herod (Ragnar Ulfung) until he has no choice but to have the holy man killed for spurning the princess's advances. The legendary Astrid Varnay is Salome's mother, Herodias. Highlights of the score include the Dance of the Seven Veils and Salome's final monologue, one of the supreme dramatic achievements in all of opera

Die Walküre by Richard Wagner( Recording )
13 editions published between 1944 and 2002 in German and Undetermined and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Even by the Met's own high standards, this Walküre cast is nothing short of breathtaking. Lauritz Melchior's truly heroic Siegmund beautifully complements Rose Bampton's feminine, appealing Sieglinde. No wonder Helen Traubel (Brünnhilde) melts when she sees the depths of their love for each other. But Kerstin Thorborg's imperious Fricka is unyielding in her demands that her husband, Wotan (Herbert Janssen), punish Siegmund for breaking the laws of marriage. With menacing, black-voiced bass Alexander Kipnis as the aggrieved Hunding, and conducted by George Szell, this is Wagner at his most stirring
Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg by Richard Wagner( Recording )
5 editions published between 1947 and 2003 in German and Undetermined and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Not many companies have the resources to put on Wagner's only comedy with all the élan it deserves. The Met does, particularly when Music Director James Levine is conducting: his affection for the work is matched only by his skill at bringing it to life. Levine leads a top-flight cast of solo singers, plus a huge chorus and orchestra. James Morris conveys all of Hans Sachs wisdom, and humanity; Karita Mattila sparkles as Eva, the young woman in love with Walther, the impetuous knight, ardently sung by Ben Heppner
Lohengrin by Richard Wagner( Recording )
11 editions published between 1983 and 2005 in German and Undetermined and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This broadcast of Wagner's most romantic opera stars René Kollo as the knight of the Holy Grail who arrives in a boat pulled by a swan to defend the innocent Elsa, played by Pilar Lorengar. Mignon Dunn is the dark and malevolent Ortrud who poisons the couple's happiness, with some help from her husband, Telramund (Donald McIntyre). James Levine leads the Met orchestra, bringing out the shimmer and the thunder of the score, along with every shade of expression in between

Elektra by Richard Strauss( Recording )
9 editions published between 1974 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the courtyard of the palace of Agamemnon, murdered king of Mycenae, Elektra bemoans her father's murder at the hands of her mother, Klytämnestra, and her mother's lover, Aegisth. She vows vengeance. She is interrupted by her younger sister, Chrysothemis, who urges Elektra to give up her obsession with revenge so they both can lead normal lives. Chrysothemis reappears with news that Orest is dead. Stunned, Elektra tells her sister she must now help kill Klytämnestra and Aegisth. When the girl pulls away in terror and runs off, Elektra starts to dig for the buried ax that killed Agamemnon. She is interrupted by a stranger who says he has come to inform Klytämnestra of Orest's death. When Elektra reveals her name, he tells her Orest lives. Servants come and kiss his hand. The dogs of the house know me, he says, but not my own sister. Crying his name, Elektra falls into Orest's arms and tells him she has lived only for his return. Their reunion is cut short when Orest is summoned before Klytämnestra. He kills both the queen and her lover. Elektra begins an ecstatic dance and when Chryothemis returns, Elektra falls dead
