Legendary conductor Fritz Reiner leads a magical performance of Wagner's only comic opera, starring the great Paul Schöffler as Hans Sachs, the cobbler-poet at the center of the story.

Josef Greindl is Pogner, Eva's father, and Gerhard Pechner is Beckmesser, the pedantic town clerk who is trying to win Eva for himself.This performance is taken from the CD box set Wagner at The Met, released by Sony Classical

Otello by Giuseppe Verdi ( Recording )
31 editions published between 1951 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The story: Act I. The action unfolds on Cyprus, under Venetian rule in the 16th century. The scene is outside the castle, residence of Otello, governor of the island, facing the port. It is night. A furious storm churns the sea, and a crowd of Venetian citizens and soldiers helplessly watch while the ship of the Moor Otello desperately tries to make it into port. Only Iago, one of Otello's men, does not participate in the general apprehension for the safety of his leader: he hates Otello, because Otello has promoted Cassio captain instead of him; he meditates revenge. The crowd is jubilant as Otello finally lands safely and announces that the Turkish fleet has been defeated. When the Moor enters the castle, the fireworks start and all drink to his victory. In the midst of the rejoicing, Iago starts to weave the scheme that will lead to his commander's downfall: he treacherously insinuates to Roderigo, who had revealed to Iago his love for Otello's wife, Desdemona, that Captain Cassio also feels the same affection for the woman. Then Iago gets Cassio drunk, and incites a fight between the two men, but the dangerous duel that starts between them is stopped by Montano. However, the peacemaker is wounded by Cassio. Iago sounds the alarm, swelling the episode out of proportion until the crowd is in tumult. Called back by the shouts and noise, Otello, falsely informed by Iago, punishes Cassio and demotes him. This is a first victory for Iago, who exults

Elektra by Richard Strauss ( Recording )
22 editions published between 1952 and 2005 in German and Undetermined and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The legendary Astrid Varnay gives a spectacular performance in the title role of Strauss's one-act masterpiece. Obsessed with avenging the murder of her father, Elektra is blind to the longings of her sister, Chrysothemis (Walburga Wegner), for a peaceful life. She taunts her mother, Klytämnestra (Elisabeth Höngen), with the gruesome fantasy of a bloody death at Elektra's hands. But Varnay's nuanced portrayal of Elektra's tortured soul is at its most gripping in the tender moments of reunion with her brother Orest (Paul Schöffler). The great Fritz Reiner conducts a rich, dramatic performance
