Die Nummer eins unter den Operetten schildert Lug und Trug um das Familienleben des Rentiers Gabriel von Eisenstein und seiner Frau Rosalinde. Eine fein gesponnene Intrige - von Eisensteins "Freund" Dr. Falke erdacht - lässt den untreuen Ehemann Eisenstein bei einem pompösen Fest des superreichen Prinzen Orlofsky auf seine Kosten kommen. Nach einer rauschenden Ballnacht, bei der alle handelnden Personen in falschen Identitäten auftreten, gibt es aber ein böses Erwachen, denn Rosalinde lässt sich nicht ungestraft düpieren
Der Freischütz by Carl Maria von Weber( Recording )
44 editions published between 1959 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 526 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Wagner said this early-Romantic gem was the most German of German operas. Its irresistible mix of colorful folklore, the spooky supernatural, a tender romance, and the passionate struggle between good and evil are all captured in Weber's tuneful and dramatic score. The cast in this rare U.S. performance is sensational: Sándor Kónya as our hero, the forester Max, who must win a shooting contest in order to marry his beloved Agathe (the ravishing Pilar Lorengar), despite the dark plotting of Caspar (Gerd Feldhoff)

With a cast like this you can't help falling in love all over again with The barber of Seville. The marvelous Hermann Prey is Figaro, a guy you wouldn't buy a used car from, but he's great to have on your side considering he can charm anyone out of anything. The sensational Marilyn Horne (Rosina) and Enrico Di Giuseppe (a love-struck Count Almaviva) immediately enlist him in their quest to foil Fernando Corena (Dr. Bartolo) so they can marry. With James Levine conducting, it's all just sensational

A brilliant ensemble cast bring Strauss's beloved operetta to life, with new English dialogue by playwright Douglas Carter Beane and lyrics by Jeremy Sams (who also directed this production, first seen on New Year's Eve 2013). Christopher Maltman and Susanna Phillips are Eisenstein and Rosalinde, the married couple at the center of this lighthearted tale of love, revenge, and mistaken identities. Paulo Szot sings Falke, Eisenstein's friend, who sets the plot in motion. Anthony Roth Costanzo is Prince Orlofsky, Jane Archibald sings Adele, and Broadway star Danny Burstein is Frosch, the jailer. Adam Fischer conducts

The Barber of Seville, or The Useless Precaution (Il barbiere di Siviglia, ossia L'inutile precauzione) is an opera buffa in two acts by Gioachino Rossini with a libretto (based on Pierre Beaumarchais's comedy Le Barbier de Séville) by Cesare Sterbini. The overture, first written for Aureliano in Palmira, is a famous example of Rossini's characteristic Italian style. The première (under the title Almaviva, or the Useless Precaution) took place on February 20, 1816, at the Teatro Argentina, Rome. Rossini's opera follows the first of the plays from the Figaro trilogy, by French playwright Pierre Beaumarchais, while Mozart's opera Le nozze di Figaro, composed 30 years earlier in 1786, is based on the second part of the Beaumarchais trilogy

Composer Richard Wagner's grandson, Wolfgang Wagner, mounted his grandfather's three-act 1868 opera Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg (or 'The Mastersingers of Nuremberg') at the Bayreuther Festspiele in 1984. Filmed for this home release, the production stars Bernd Weikl as Hans Sachs, Manfred Schenk as Veit Pogner, András Molnár as Kunz Vogelgesang and Martin Egel as Konrad Nachtigall. It features musical accompaniment by the Orchester der Bayreuther Festspiele, as conducted by Horst Stein. The work - Wagner's only comedy - is set in the sixteenth century renaissance city of Nuremberg and concerns the misadventures of the Master Singers (among them the cultivated Beckmesser and the aristocratic Stolzing), a guild of novice poets and musicians who tour throughout Europe together

St Matthew Passion : BWV. 244 by Johann Sebastian Bach( Recording )
20 editions published between 1959 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Although Bach wrote four (or five) settings of the Passions only two have survived; the St. Matthew Passion (Matthäus-Passion) and the St John Passion. The St. Matthew Passion was probably first performed on Good Friday (11 April) 1727 in the Thomaskirche in Leipzig, where Bach was the Kantor of the School and Directoris Chori musici of Leipzig. He revised it by 1736, performing it again on 30 March 1736, this time including two organs in the instrumentation. He further revised and performed it again on 24 March 1742. Considered to be one of the greatest pieces of sacred music in Western music, it has been recorded many times, and this version, recorded in July 1964 has remained one of the reference recordings of the work, not least for the inclusion of Fritz Wunderlich as performer of the tenor arias, as well as the rest of the supreme vocal cast which includes Pears, Prey, Ameling and Krause. Booklet notes are by the producer of this recording, the great Ray Minshull, and full texts, together with a new English translation are included
