I vespri siciliani : [opera in 5 acts] by Giuseppe Verdi( )

23 editions published between 1990 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 554 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Verdi's gripping tale of Sicilians rising against the occupying French stars Renata Scotto in her only broadcast of this rarely heard masterpiece. From the beginning of the opera, when Elena (Scotto) sings an "innocent" song fanning the people's resentment against the foreign army, to the end, when the ringing of her wedding bells signals the start of the revolt, Scotto's artistry blazes. James Levine leads the Met Orchestra and Chorus in a wonderfully idiomatic performance, and Ruggero Raimondi is magnificent as Procida, the outlawed Sicilian leader

The plot revolves around its two female characters. Acuzena is the daughter of a gypsy who, fifteen years before, was burned as a witch for cursing the young son of a nobleman. In revenge, Acuzena abducted the son to throw into the embers of the same fire, but, in her distress, threw in her own son. She has brought up the other child as her own. Leonora (Sutherland) is a lady-in-waiting at court who is loved by two men, the Count di Luna, who is the older son of the nobleman who had Acuzena's mother burned, and Manrico, the troubadour, and leader of the rebel forces engaged in civil war against the count. Tragedy results when the four come together
Falstaff by Giuseppe Verdi( )

5 editions published in 2009 in 3 languages and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Above all, Verdi's last opera requires the greatest of conductors and a consummate singing actor in the title role. Here we have both: James Levine, who knows exactly how to draw out all the superb colors in the orchestra, while keeping the music effervescent as he also gives the singers all the room they need to bring their roles to life. As Falstaff, the masterful Giuseppe Taddei knows the secret of using every word and note to create an indelible and loveable character. Fiorenza Cossotto is Dame Quickly, the woman who gives Falstaff a run for his money
