Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti( Recording )

117 editions published between 1953 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 1,354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is Maria Callas's only broadcast from the stage of the Met. Hearing "La Divina" in an actual performance is a unique thrill, and Lucia is a huge part of the palpable Callas mystique. Donizetti's bloody tale of the Scottish lass torn from her true love and forced into an arranged marriage, only to go mad and murder her bridegroom on their wedding night, was the perfect vehicle for Callas's wizardry. Her haunting voice simply becomes Lucia's--every facet of emotion so pronounced that we cannot escape her spell

The role of Simon Boccanegra is one of the capstones of Verdi's baritone repertoire.

Anna Tomowa-Sintow is Amelia, his long-lost daughter, in love with one of Boccanegra's most bitter political enemies. James Levine reveals his passion for Verdi's score, bringing out all the drama while reveling in its aching lyricism
La gioconda by Amilcare Ponchielli( )

43 editions published between 1952 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 742 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

52 editions published between 1971 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 676 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Joan Sutherland, dubbed "La Stupenda" by her fans and the press, is the hapless heroine Elvira who loses her heart--and her sanity--over Luciano Pavarotti, the Cavalier hero torn between love and duty
