Norma by Vincenzo Bellini( Recording )

89 editions published between 1962 and 2006 in 5 languages and held by 881 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

Carmen by Georges Bizet( Recording )

66 editions published between 1973 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 670 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Carmen is enticing, irresistible, and devastatingly fatal. Men can't resist her, but she refuses to be tied down. In Bizet's ever-popular opera, this leads to broken hearts, jealousy--and death. The composer expresses every nuance of the riveting title character in her music, and seldom has it been as superbly sung as the great Marilyn Horne does here. She is earthy, erotic, dangerous, and unforgettable. James McCracken is an explosive Don José, the poor soldier who gives up everything for Carmen, only to lose her in the end and seal his own fate
Le prophète; [opera in five acts by Giacomo Meyerbeer( Recording )

80 editions published between 1970 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 657 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Meyerbeer's grand operas once ruled the operatic world, but they're rarities today. With this performance the Met pulled out all the stops to show modern audiences what all the fuss was about. James McCracken is Jean of Lyden, a simple innkeeper who is proclaimed the Prophet and who leads a religious uprising in medieval Holland. During the turmoil he denounces his mother, Fidès (Marilyn Horne at her spectacular best), and his fiancé, Berthe (a passionate Renata Scotto), turns on him. The opera ends catastrophically but is filled with colorful music

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.
