Il barbiere di Siviglia by Gioacchino Rossini( )

42 editions published between 1960 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 1,015 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rossini's effervescent comedy takes on new life with a superb cast led by conductor Andrew Davis. Kathleen Battle shines as Rosina, a feisty young women with a mind of her own--especially when it comes to love. Rockwell Blake is her suitor, the handsome Count Almaviva, who must outwit Rosina's elderly guardian, Dr. Bartolo (Renato Capecchi), who wants to marry the girl himself. Paolo Montarsolo sings Don Basilio, Rosina's music teacher. And at the center of it all is William Workman as Figaro, the resourceful barber of the title, who pulls the strings and brings the young lovers together
La forza del destino by Giuseppe Verdi( )

56 editions published between 1954 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 935 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Verdi painted an immense canvas with this dark but tuneful opera. The legendary Leontyne Price is seen in one of her greatest roles, Leonora. Price's soaring voice encompasses every nuance of Leonora's emotion as she moves from joy through resignation to ultimate heartbreak. James Levine's brilliant leading of the Met orchestra and chorus is a lesson in Verdi style. Giuseppe Giacomini is Alvaro, the man Leonora loves, and Leo Nucci is Don Carlo, the dark instrument of their Fate

One of these bracelets is given to the Prince at the ball and recognition of the other leads to the customary happy ending

L'elisir d'amore by Gaetano Donizetti( Recording )

55 editions published between 1959 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 557 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This performance showcases Luciano Pavarotti at his magnificent best. The role of good hearted Nemorino might have been written just for him. Hopelessly in love with wealthy Adina (Kathleen Battle), Nemorino watches, helpless, as flashy Sergeant Belcore (Gino Quilico) seems to win her heart. Enter Dr. Dulcamara (Paul Plishka). He's a quack, but Nemorino believes that the love potion Dulcamara is peddling will help him win Adina's love. It's only a bottle of plain old Bordeaux, but never underestimate the power of true love -- or of Luciano Pavarotti's seductive tenor

When this production opened, it had been more than half a century since Met audiences had last heard Bellini's gem of an opera. It was well worth the wait. "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
