Il pirata by Vincenzo Bellini ( Recording )
45 editions published between 1959 and 2000 in 4 languages and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Bellini's emotion-drenched opera had never been performed at the Met until superstar soprano Renée Fleming revealed its riches to captivated audiences. Gualtiero (Marcello Giodani) is an exiled count, forced to become a pirate. His enemy Ernesto (Dwayne Croft) blackmails Imogene (Fleming) into marrying him, even though he knows she loves Gualtiero. In the searing final scene Imogene goes insane when Gualtiero is condemned to death. This is riveting bel canto drama as you have seldom hear it

Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti ( )
25 editions published between 1980 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is Maria Callas's only broadcast from the stage of the Met. Hearing "La Divina" in an actual performance is a unique thrill, and Lucia is a huge part of the palpable Callas mystique. Donizetti's bloody tale of the Scottish lass torn from her true love and forced into an arranged marriage, only to go mad and murder her bridegroom on their wedding night, was the perfect vehicle for Callas's wizardry. Her haunting voice simply becomes Lucia's--every facet of emotion so pronounced that we cannot escape her spell

Francesca da Rimini by Riccardo Zandonai ( Recording )
11 editions published between 1969 and 2005 in 4 languages and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This sumptuous production by Piero Faggioni (sets by Ezio Frigerio and costumes by Franca Squarciapino) seduced Met audiences into the enchanting world of Zandonai's rarely heard opera. His retelling of Dante's story of the immortal passion of Paolo and Francesca in 13th century Italy is as musically elegant and beautiful as the details of the production on stage. James Levine's fervent conducting galvanizes the fabulous cast: Renata Scotto and Plácido Domingo as the lovers with Cornell MacNeil as an appropriately brutal Giovanni
