Most widely held works by Hans Hopf
Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg by Richard Wagner( Recording )

48 editions published between 1951 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 594 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 )

48 editions published between 1954 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 388 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
Tannhäuser by Richard Wagner( Recording )

47 editions published between 1960 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 379 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
Der Freischutz by Carl Maria von Weber( Recording )

59 editions published between 1952 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 326 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 )

19 editions published between 1976 and 2003 in German and Undetermined and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Richard Strauss's dramatic and colorful score, based on Wilde's scandalous play, is brought to life masterfully by James Levine and the Met Orchestra. The magnetic Grace Bumbry captures every neurotic nuance of the title character, the teenage princess who becomes obsessed with the imprisoned prophet Jochanaan. When he rejects her advances, tragedy ensues. Salome's infamous final scene is among the most powerful moments in all of opera. Ragnar Ulfung and Regina Resnik portray the royal couple of Herodes and Herodias

5 editions published between 1962 and 2013 in German and held by 36 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
