Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti( Recording )

161 editions published between 1960 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 1,738 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Legendary diva Joan Sutherland sings the role that made her an overnight sensation. Her portrayal conveys every nuance of the character of the innocent young woman who is forced into an arranged marriage by her brother Enrico (Anselmo Colzani), while secretly engaged to Edgardo, sung by Richard Tucker. Sutherland's mad scene--one of the most celebrated performances in modern operatic history--draws rapturous applause from the audience in this extraordinary broadcast
Norma by Vincenzo Bellini( Recording )

174 editions published between 1962 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 1,704 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
Don Giovanni by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( Recording )

95 editions published between 1960 and 2009 in 7 languages and held by 1,583 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The legendary Joan Sutherland takes on the role of Donna Anna in this star-studded broadcast, displaying the full range of the character's feelings, from fury to mourning to revenge. Sutherland's singing perfectly balances floating legato lines with fiery coloratura. James Morris is the libertine of the title, a ruthless man in the guise of a handsome, charismatic aristocrat. Gabriel Bacquier sings his servant, Leporello, and Julia Varady is the besotted Donna Elvira

Donizetti's comedy gets a thrilling combination of brilliant singing and impish humor to make it fizz like Champagne. Joan Sutherland, the charming tomboy Marie, has fallen for Luciano Pavarotti as Tonio, who shows how happy he is by nailing nine high Cs in a single aria. Marie's "aunt" fights an uphill battle to turn the girl into a proper young society lady, until Marie is rescued by Tonio and the entire regiment of "fathers" who have raised her. "Delightful" doesn't begin to describe it

"The best cast in the world," was how one critic described the legendary performers the Met brought together. The pair sent audiences into a frenzy with their sumptuous, dazzling singing. Joan Sutherland, dubbed "La Stupenda" by her fans and the press, is the hapless heroine Elvira who loses her heart--and her sanity--over Luciano Pavarotti, the Cavalier hero torn between love and duty
