Norma by Vincenzo Bellini ( Recording )
67 editions published between 1962 and 2006 in 5 languages and held by 720 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Norma may be the most challenging soprano role in all of Italian opera. Only the very greatest have the technical mastery and vocal acumen to convey all the facets of this virtuosic part. With this legendary cast, everything comes together in this bel canto masterpiece. Joan Sutherland's ravishingly beautiful voice can do anything Bellini's spectacular vocal line requires. As Norma's friend Adalgisa, Marilyn Horne proves that mezzos can sing as gloriously as sopranos. Together they sent audiences into a frenzy. Add poetic Carlo Bergonzi as the man they both love and rich-voiced Cesare Siepi as Norma's father, and you have one of the all time great broadcasts

Mignon by Ambroise Thomas ( Recording )
23 editions published between 1970 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this performance, the sensational Risë Stevens sings one of her signature roles, the shy but loving Mignon. It's a true operatic rarity, not heard at the Met since Stevens last did it in 1949, and it overflows with astonishing musical variety. The opera has at least two roles dear to the hearts of great singing actors: Mignon, and old Lothario, who turns out to be her father - here the superb Ezio Pinza in a stellar performance. Mimi Benzell is the flirtatious Philine, and James Melton is Wilhelm Meister, Mignon's true love
Oscar Hammerstein's Carmen Jones ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is a familiar archetypal story, which is exactly where its appeal lies. Relocated to a Southern military base, Joe is a soldier about to leave for flying school, planning to marry his longtime sweetheart Cindy Lou before he goes. But free-spirited parachute packer Carmen interferes, when Joe is tasked with delivering her to jail after she gets into a vicious fight with another woman. This begins their stormy romance, and ends with Joe AWOL, the pair on the run in Chicago, and Carmen deserting Joe for professional boxer Husky Miller. Undone by her fickleness, Joe's passion for Carmen has tragic consequences

La Gioconda by Amilcare Ponchielli ( Recording )
19 editions published between 1960 and 1996 in 4 languages and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
With Renata Tebaldi wringing every bit of drama out of the title role, there are plenty of opportunities for goose bumps here. Add to that Carlo Bergonzi's glowing portrayal of the Enzo, the man she loves and the impassioned Fiorenza Cossotto as the woman he loves, plus one jealous husband (Bonaldo Giaiotti), and an Inquisition spy (Cornell MacNeil) bent on revenge, and you have operatic extravagance at its wonderful best, all set in romantic, mysterious 17th century Venice
