Madama Butterfly by Giacomo Puccini( Recording )
36 editions published between 1950 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 2,137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Madama Butterfly is a story of love betrayed, the innocent Japanese heroine of the title deserted by her faithless American husband and finally driven to suicide
La Bohème by Giacomo Puccini( Recording )
1 edition published in 1993 in Italian and held by 1,057 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The story of La bohème is the epitome of young starving artists whose lifestyles and escapades gave us the Bohemian genre. A notion of the poverty in which they are developing their artistic talents is evident from the very first scene as painter Marcello and poet Rodolfo try to keep warm by burning pages from Rodolfo's latest drama. Set in 1830s Paris, we follow the love between Mimi and Rodolfo as the young artists experience triumphs and tragedies
Sacred arias by Andrea Bocelli( Recording )
10 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in Latin and Multiple languages and held by 898 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La Gioconda by Amilcare Ponchielli( Recording )
26 editions published between 1958 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 447 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
Mefistofele by Arrigo Boito( Recording )
17 editions published between 1950 and 2008 in Italian and English and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The elderly scholar Faust is returned to his youth by the satanic Mefistofeles for the pursuit of beauty and knowledge. In the sordid aftermath of two failed love affairs, he reflects on the illusory nature of worldly beauty, and through a mystical union with the divinity, dies redeemed
Adriana Lecouvreur [opera in 4 acts by Francesco Cilèa( Recording )
19 editions published between 1961 and 1991 in 3 languages and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The great Renata Scotto gives a spellbinding performance as the legendary actress of the title. With all of France at her feet, she has doubts about the faithfulness of her lover, the handsome military hero Maurizio (Neil Shicoff). To aid his claim for the Saxon throne, Maurizio has been paying court to the Princess di Bouillon (Viorica Cortez). Emotions erupt at a party given by the Princess when Adriana publicly accuses her of adultery. But the Princess gets even by sending Adriana a bouquet of poisoned flowers. The great baritone Mario Sereni is Michonnet, the faithful friend and theater director who is hopelessly in love with Adriana
Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti( Recording )
21 editions published between 1960 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 340 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

Messa da Requiem by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )
3 editions published in 2009 in Latin and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This performance of Verdi's towering Requiem Mass--given in memory of President John F. Kennedy--brings together four of the greatest Verdi singers of their generation. Soprano Leontyne Price, equally acclaimed for her soaring voice and the deep feeling she brought to all her performances, is ideally paired with mezzo-soprano Rosalind Elias in the stirring "Recordare" duet. Tenor Carlo Bergonzi and bass Cesare Siepi are equally profound yet stylish in their rendition of this soulful work. Georg Solti conducts in his final appearance at the Met
