Der Rosenkavalier by Richard Strauss( )

150 editions published between 1957 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 3,031 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Strauss's poignant fairy tale of 18th-century Vienna is brilliantly realized by a glittering cast under the musical direction of the great Karl Böhm, a friend and protégé of the composer. Vienna's own Leonie Rysanek is the beautiful and wise Marschallin, the woman who knows her affair with the impetuous Octavian (a superb Christa Ludwig) will not last forever. The enchanting Reri Grist sings Sophie, the girl who captures the young man's heart. Water Berry is appropriately loveable and boorish as Sophie's would-be fiancé, the rustic Baron Ochs, who becomes the victim of Octavian's elaborate joke. Nicolai Gedda is luxuriously cast as the Italian Singer

89 editions published between 1965 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 1,810 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wagner's drama of overwhelming love and devastating loss has seldom been so vividly brought to life as with this all-star cast of great singing actors. The electrifying combination of Jon Vickers and Leonie Rysanek, as twins who fall in love, is legendary. Birgit Nilsson, the defining Brünnhilde of her generation, gives one of her most touching performances as the daughter of a god who cannot withstand the power of human love. With the great Christa Ludwig as Fricka, and Thomas Stewart's gripping portrayal of Wotan, the unraveling god, this is not to be missed

In my own voice : memoirs by Christa Ludwig( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Born in Berlin in 1928, Christa at three sang without a mistake the Queen of the Night's aria from The Magic Flute. So said her mother, herself a professional singer. But as a child under the Third Reich, particularly during the final war years, for Christa music was largely silenced, replaced by deprivation, bombings, and fear. The war over, Christa's mezzo-soprano brought her almost immediate recognition, and in 1946 she made her professional debut with the Frankfurt Opera singing Orlovsky in Fledermaus. So began a career that soared for close to 50 years, encompassing dozens of roles, as memorable as they were dissimilar, from the Marschallin and Carmen to Kundry and Amneris, and ending with her farewell appearance, in Vienna in 1994, as Klytamnestra in Elektra."
