Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg by Richard Wagner( Recording )

62 editions published between 1951 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Not many companies have the resources to put on Wagner's only comedy with all the élan it deserves. The Met does, particularly when Music Director James Levine is conducting: his affection for the work is matched only by his skill at bringing it to life. Levine leads a top-flight cast of solo singers, plus a huge chorus and orchestra. James Morris conveys all of Hans Sachs wisdom, and humanity; Karita Mattila sparkles as Eva, the young woman in love with Walther, the impetuous knight, ardently sung by Ben Heppner
Der Freischutz by Carl Maria von Weber( Recording )

33 editions published between 1950 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 320 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)
Fidelio op. 72 by Ludwig van Beethoven( Recording )

58 editions published between 1953 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beethoven's only opera attracts the greatest singers and conductors, not only for its passionate music, but also because of its profoundly stirring message of freedom and the rights of the individual against tyranny. It all comes together superbly in this historic performance led by the legendary conductor Karl Böhm. Birgit Nilsson is Leonore, the woman who disguises herself as a man in her desperate attempt to locate her husband Florestan (James King, a couple weeks after his Met debut in the same role), who has been unjustly imprisoned by his enemy, Don Pizarro (Geraint Evans)

Hans-Joachim Ketelsen is Mandryka, the wealthy landowner and unlikely suitor who wins Arabella's heart. Barbara Bonney sings Zdenka, Arabella's younger sister, and Raymond Very is Matteo, the officer who thinks he is in love with Arabella but unexpectedly finds his happiness elsewhere. Judith Forst and Eric Halfvarson round out the cast as Count and Countess Waldner, Arabella and Zdenka's parents. Christoph Eschenbach conducts

Der Rosenkavalier by Richard Strauss( Visual )

14 editions published between 1961 and 2010 in German and Undetermined and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Elisabeth Schwarzkopf was the most celebrated Marschallin since Lotte Lehmann; Otto Edelmann recalled the great days of Emanuel List and Richard Mayr; Sena Jurinac, perhaps a shade too plump for a dramatically convincing Octavian, nevertheless sang, moved and acted well; and Annaliese Rothenberger was absolutely divine as Sophie. The filmed production is lavish and colorful. This was the definitive performance of its time." (The New York Times)
