Dialogues des Carmélites by Francis Poulenc( Recording )

67 editions published between 1957 and 2012 in 7 languages and held by 1,866 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The tragic fate of the nuns of the Carmelite convent at Copiègne during the French Revolution inspired one of Francis Poulenc's most personal works, and one of the most profoundly moving operas in the repertoire. At its center is Isabel Leonard as Blanche de la Force, a shy young aristocratic woman who joins the order on the eve of the Revolution, flees when the sisters, forced to leave their convent, take a vow of martyrdom, and is finally reunited with them as they face death by the guillotine. Felicity Palmer is Madame de Croissy, Patricia Racette is Madame Lidoine, and Elizabeth Bishop is Mother Marie. Paul Appleby and David Pittsinger co-star as Blanche's brother and father

Samson et Dalila by Camille Saint-Saëns( Recording )

28 editions published between 1963 and 2001 in 4 languages and held by 489 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Biblical tale of the overwhelming love between a Jewish leader (Samson) and a Philistine beauty (Dalila) that turns sour and destroys them both has inspired numerous composers. But it's easy to see why Saint-Saëns's opera has remained a favorite--not only with audiences but also with great singing actors. Seldom has Dalila been so sultry and seductive, or Samson's fall from strong man to blind prisoner been so wrenching. With enticing Risë Stevens and heroic Mario Del Monaco in the titles roles, and Martial Singher as the High Priest, this stunning performance is a true gem
