Tosca by Giacomo Puccini ( Recording )
51 editions published between 1953 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 624 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Tosca, the beautiful, glamorous singer who has all of Rome at her feet, is one of the iconic soprano roles of the Italian repertoire. She's caught between two men--her lover, the handsome, idealistic painter Cavaradossi, and the villainous Baron Scarpia, Rome's all-powerful chief of police, who will stop at nothing to win Tosca for himself. Puccini's story of torture, attempted rape, murder, suicide, and general mayhem is as thrilling and dramatic as anything seen on the operatic stage. Thanks to Eleanor Steber's impetuous title heroine, George London's malevolent Scarpia, and Carlo Bergonzi's romantic Cavaradossi, this Tosca still sends chills down your spine

A marvelous cast vividly brings to life Verdi's passionate story of love, betrayal, and revenge. Suave-voiced Carlo Bergonzi, often called the poet of tenors, is the Swedish king in love with Amelia (the glorious Leontyne Price in stupendous form). But she is the wife of his best friend and confidant, Count Anckarström (the great baritone Robert Merrill) who discovers the lovers' secret and assassinates the king at a royal ball. Roberta Peters is the perky page Oscar and Mignon Dunn is the fortuneteller Ulrica. A stellar lineup of singers from top to bottom

La Gioconda by Amilcare Ponchielli ( Recording )
27 editions published between 1960 and 2000 in 4 languages and held by 299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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

Aida by Giuseppe Verdi ( Recording )
66 editions published between 1959 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Leontyne Price's performance here reminds us why she was the most acclaimed Aida of her time. Grace Bumbry is a fiercely royal Amneris, as passionately in love with Radames (Carlo Bergonzi) as Aida is. But the love triangle is further complicated by two nations at war with each other. And it all comes unraveled when Aida's father (Robert Merrill) forces her to choose between the man she loves and her country. Conductor Thomas Schippers leads this thrilling performance
