The role of Simon Boccanegra is one of the capstones of Verdi's baritone repertoire. Sherrill Milnes gives a stunning portrayal of the 14th century Genoa doge, singing with both power and poetry, and reminding everyone why audiences acclaimed him the great American Verdi baritone of the day. Anna Tomowa-Sintow is Amelia, his long-lost daughter, in love with one of Boccanegra's most bitter political enemies. James Levine reveals his passion for Verdi's score, bringing out all the drama while reveling in its aching lyricism

The clash between two queens, with the throne of England at stake, is at the center of Donizetti's bel canto drama. Sondra Radvanovsky, in the second part of her historic traversal of all three of the composer's Tudor queen operas in one season, stars in the title role of the Catholic Mary, Queen of Scots. Her opponent is Queen Elizabeth I, sung by Elza van den Heever, as the Protestant ruler who knows her position is not secure as long as Mary lives. Tenor Celso Albelo is George Talbot, the Earl of Leicester and favorite of the queen, who urges her to reconcile with Mary. But when Mary insults Elizabeth, her tragic fate is sealed. Kwangchul Youn as Talbot and Patrick Carfizzi as Cecil complete the principal cast, and Riccardo Frizza conducts

I vespri siciliani by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

8 editions published between 1964 and 1990 in 3 languages and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Verdi's gripping tale of Sicilians rising against the occupying French stars Renata Scotto in her only broadcast of this rarely heard masterpiece. From the beginning of the opera, when Elena (Scotto) sings an "innocent" song fanning the people's resentment against the foreign army, to the end, when the ringing of her wedding bells signals the start of the revolt, Scotto's artistry blazes. James Levine leads the Met Orchestra and Chorus in a wonderfully idiomatic performance, and Ruggero Raimondi is magnificent as Procida, the outlawed Sicilian leader
