Tannhäuser by Richard Wagner ( Recording )
43 editions published between 1960 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Two major stars made their Met debuts in this sensational performance: conductor Georg Solti and baritone Hermann Prey. Solti brings out all the theatricality and drama of Wagner's colorful score, leading a top-notch cast. Prey is Wolfram, the kind and sympathetic man who loves the virtuous Elisabeth (an impassioned Leonie Rysanek). But she is in love with the rebellious knight Tannhäuser (Hans Hopf), who cannot forget his lustful time with the goddess Venus (Irene Dalis) and is banished for singing her praises at court. When the Pope himself refuses forgiveness for Tannhäuser's sins, he faces damnation--until the saintly Elisabeth's death miraculously redeems his soul
Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg by Richard Wagner ( Recording )
49 editions published between 1951 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Legendary conductor Fritz Reiner leads a magical performance of Wagner's only comic opera, starring the great Paul Schöffler as Hans Sachs, the cobbler-poet at the center of the story. Victoria de los Angeles is Eva, the young woman who must marry one of the mastersingers--but loves the knight Walther von Stoltzing, sung by Hans Hopf. Josef Greindl is Pogner, Eva's father, and Gerhard Pechner is Beckmesser, the pedantic town clerk who is trying to win Eva for himself.This performance is taken from the CD box set Wagner at The Met, released by Sony Classical
Die Frau ohne Schatten by Richard Strauss ( Recording )
49 editions published between 1954 and 2006 in 4 languages and held by 379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Strauss and Hofmannsthal's sumptuous and magical fairy tale receives an authoritative performance conducted by the great Karl Böhm, a protégé of the composer, in his last Met broadcast. The extraordinary cast is led by Leonie Rysanek as the Empress, the "woman without a shadow" of the title, who stars opposite James King as the ethereal Emperor, Walter Berry as the goodhearted Barak the Dyer, Ursula Schröder-Feinen as the hapless Dyer's Wife, and Mignon Dunn as the sinister Nurse

Der Freischütz by Carl Maria von Weber ( Recording )
54 editions published between 1950 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 314 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)

Salome by Richard Strauss ( Recording )
16 editions published between 1976 and 2003 in German and Undetermined and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This performance presents the great Leonie Rysanek in one of her most memorable roles--the teenage Judean princess Salome. Obsessed with the prophet Jochanaan, the Biblical John the Baptist (Norman Bailey), she skillfully manipulates her lecherous stepfather Herod (Ragnar Ulfung) until he has no choice but to have the holy man killed for spurning the princess's advances. The legendary Astrid Varnay is Salome's mother, Herodias. Highlights of the score include the Dance of the Seven Veils and Salome's final monologue, one of the supreme dramatic achievements in all of opera

In the courtyard of the palace of Agamemnon, murdered king of Mycenae, Elektra bemoans her father's murder at the hands of her mother, Klytämnestra, and her mother's lover, Aegisth. She vows vengeance. She is interrupted by her younger sister, Chrysothemis, who urges Elektra to give up her obsession with revenge so they both can lead normal lives. Chrysothemis reappears with news that Orest is dead. Stunned, Elektra tells her sister she must now help kill Klytämnestra and Aegisth. When the girl pulls away in terror and runs off, Elektra starts to dig for the buried ax that killed Agamemnon. She is interrupted by a stranger who says he has come to inform Klytämnestra of Orest's death. When Elektra reveals her name, he tells her Orest lives. Servants come and kiss his hand. The dogs of the house know me, he says, but not my own sister. Crying his name, Elektra falls into Orest's arms and tells him she has lived only for his return. Their reunion is cut short when Orest is summoned before Klytämnestra. He kills both the queen and her lover. Elektra begins an ecstatic dance and when Chryothemis returns, Elektra falls dead

Götterdämmerung by Richard Wagner ( )
3 editions published between 1962 and 2011 in German and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This performance marked Birgit Nilsson's first Met broadcast in one of her most celebrated roles, Brünnhilde, in the Ring cycle's final installment. Hans Hopf sings Siegfried, the man whose heroic deeds eventually bring about the twilight of the gods, and the sensational Gottlob Frick is Hagen. With its story of love, treachery, murder--and, ultimately, redemption--Götterdämmerung brings Wagner's epic to a monumental conclusion. The great Erich Leinsdorf leads the Met Orchestra and Chorus
