68 editions published between 1959 and 2007 in 6 languages and held by 500 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Even being the world's greatest and most admired actress doesn't guarantee that the handsome young man you love is safe from other women--especially when you have a conniving Princess as a rival. On the other hand, there is something marvelously romantic about being killed by a bouquet of poisoned violets. Montserrat Caballé is the definitive Adriana, the actress of the title, opposite José Carreras as the object of her affection, Maurizio. Fiorenza Cossotto is the delightfully imperious Princess di Bouillon

One of these bracelets is given to the Prince at the ball and recognition of the other leads to the customary happy ending
La forza del destino by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

41 editions published between 1958 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 356 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

44 editions published between 1950 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This spectacular cast makes any listener wonder why such a marvelous, colorful opera isn't much better known. Sensational Shirley Verrett is Leonora, the beautiful, mysterious lady who so completely captures the heart of the monk Fernando (Luciano Pavarotti at his finest) that he forsakes his calling to defeat the Moors in battle in order to win her hand. Alas, she is the mistress of the king (Sherrill Milnes), who is so besotted with her he is determined to defy the pope himself to make Leonora his queen. It's a tragic opera, so no one wins--except the audience

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
