Most widely held works by Ileana Cotrubas
La traviata by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

96 editions published between 1977 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 1,212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ileana Cotrubas is stunning as Violetta, the glamorous courtesan who gives up everything for love. Her portrayal is filled with countless little touches that make even the most familiar role seem totally new, and audiences suffered with her plight, and wept at her death. Plácido Domingo's golden, seductive voice would make any woman want to run away with him, and Cornell MacNeil is his stern but understanding father. James Levine's nuanced conducting is sublime

(Scene: A shore on the island of Ceylon in antiquity) In anticipation of the fishing season, the villagers elect Zurga as their king and prepare their annual vigil to ensure safe seas. Zurga welcomes Nadir, his long-time friend, whom he has not seen since their love for the same woman divided them. They promise eternal friendship and vow never again to allow a woman to come between them. Within moments, a woman arrives, veiled. She will stand through the night, alone on the shore, in ritual prayer. Zurga promises her a priceless pearl if she is chaste in her duty and death if she violates her purity. Nadir recognizes her voice. It is Léïla, the woman he and Zurga loved in the past, and his feelings for her are rekindled
