Who could resist the tales of Hoffmann when ardent-voiced tenor Nicolai Gedda as the title hero of Offenbach's opera spins them?

Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti ( Recording )
19 editions published between 1992 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
It was a performance of Lucia that literally made Joan Sutherland a star overnight. And no wonder. Her enormous, sumptuous voice seemed made for the role of the hapless young woman, driven mad by her fate. When Sutherland sang Lucia's famous "mad scene" it drove audiences, well, mad. Her cascading vocal embellishments seemed both unending and superhuman, but she tossed them off with the élan of an Olympic gymnast dazzling the crowd with a gold-medal performance. But then, Sutherland's voice was always golden

Halévy's gripping opera had not been heard at the Met for almost 70 years when it was revived for tenor Neil Shicoff a month before this broadcast. His searing account of Eléazar, a Jewish goldsmith burdened by a terrible secret quickly became a modern operatic classic. Soile Isokoski is his beloved daughter Rachel, in love with a man who turns out not to be Samuel, a simple workman in her father's shop, but Prince Léopold (Eric Cutler). Rachel is sent to her gruesome death by Cardinal de Brogni (Ferruccio Furlanetto), who discovers Eléazar's secret too late
