Les Troyens by Hector Berlioz ( Recording )
54 editions published between 1969 and 2005 in 6 languages and held by 1,305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Performances of Berlioz's epic masterpiece are rare events--under James Levine's inspired leadership, the stellar cast and the Met's chorus and orchestra triumphantly meet the enormous challenge. Ben Heppner is the legendary Trojan hero Aeneas who escapes the doomed city of Troy and falls in love with the beautiful Queen of Carthage, Dido, sung by the radiant Lorraine Hunt Lieberson in her final appearance at the Met. Deborah Voigt is breathtaking as Cassandra, the Trojan prophetess who sees the looming calamity but is ignored
Peter Grimes by Benjamin Britten ( Recording )
47 editions published between 1969 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 888 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The great Jon Vickers sings one of his most acclaimed roles, the tortured fisherman of the title, in Britten's powerful drama. Hounded by the small-minded local townspeople, with only Ellen Orford (Lucine Amara) and Captain Balstrode (Geraint Evans) on his sie, Peter's slow descent into madness is as searing as it is inevitable. Colin Davis conducts, with Lili Chookasian as Auntie and Jean Madeira as Mrs. Sedley

A perennial favorite with audiences and critics alike, Tafelmusik's Messiah has garnered glowing reviews year after year

Benvenuto Cellini [Opéra-comique in two acts and four tableaux] by Hector Berlioz ( Recording )
32 editions published between 1962 and 2008 in 5 languages and held by 623 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Berlioz's opera about the legendary hot-blooded Florentine sculptor and goldsmith is a rarity. But under James Levine's masterful conducting the huge and complex score dazzles like one of Cellini's artworks. Marcello Giordani is Benventuo Cellini, who must finish a statue of Perseus for Pope Clement (Robert Lloyd) by nightfall or be hanged as a murderer and rapist. Against all the odds, including the conniving of his vicious rival Fieramosca (Peter Coleman-Wright), Cellini's artistry triumphs, and he can finally be with the woman he loves, Teresa (Isabel Bayrakdarian)
