Giordano's gripping drama of love and politics at the time of the French Revolution demands larger-than-life performances, and the stellar lineup of artists in this broadcast delivers: Baritone Sherrill Milnes (celebrating his 25th Met anniversary with this appearance) is sensational as the servant-turned-revolutionary Gérard. Tenor Nicola Martinucci gives a powerful account of the title role, the poet Andrea Chénier. The two men are rivals for the love of Maddalena, sung with passion and charisma by Aprile Millo. Julius Rudel conducts

Otello by Giuseppe Verdi ( Recording )
2 editions published in 1985 in Italian and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Act II. A ground-floor hall in the castle; a door leads to the garden. Iago continues his plan: he suggests to Cassio to ask Desdemona to intercede in his favour with Otello. In a monologue, Iago describes his cynical view of life, then he plants the seeds of jealousy in the Moor's soul, leading him to suspect that there is a secret love between Cassio and Desdemona. Thus, when the woman, arriving from the garden, tries to intercede for the degraded captain, Otello's jealousy is enflamed, and he brusquely refuses the request. Once again, Iago insinuates having heard some compromising words murmured by Cassio in his sleep, and, having obtained with the help of his wife Emilia a handkerchief that Otello had given to his young wife, affirms having seen it in Cassio's hands. For Otello, this is proof enough. He vows terrible revenge

Luisa Miller by Giuseppe Verdi ( Recording )
20 editions published between 1968 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Every ounce of searing emotion that Verdi lavished on his opera about love, betrayal, and its bitter consequences is brilliantly realized by James Levine's passionate conducting and his stellar cast. Plácido Domingo is at his most golden and ardent as Rodolfo, the son of Count Walter (Bonaldo Giaiotti), in love with the poor Luisa Miller (Renata Scotto). The count's henchman, Wurm (James Morris), blackmails and lies to prevent the marriage, but even Luisa's beloved father (Sherrill Milnes in a stunning performance) can't prevent the ultimate tragedy
Simon Boccanegra by Giuseppe Verdi ( Visual )
15 editions published between 1984 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Simon Boccanegra, Doge of Genoa, is one of Verdi's most profound characters, a complex man ruled by love of family and devotion to country. The compelling, richly colored music of Simon Boccanegra vividly embodies the tangled personal passions and political rivalries of Renaissance Italy."--Container
