Parsifal : [ein Bühnenweihfestspiel] by Richard Wagner( )

88 editions published between 1985 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 1,481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wagner's mystical opera makes extraordinary demands on the conductor, but James Levine is renowned for the special affection and authority he brings to this transcendent work. The music shimmers and glows, evoking the legendary world of the Knights of the Holy Grail and the pure fool who brings healing power to the land. Peter Hofmann stars as the questing title hero, Jerome Hines sings the wise old man, Gurnemanz, and Mignon Dunn is the voluptuous Kundry, whose erotic temptations almost ensnare the young hero
Tannhäuser by Richard Wagner( Recording )

36 editions published between 1985 and 2016 in German and Undetermined and held by 748 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El Staatskapelle Chorus y la Staatsoper Orchestra son las verdaderas estrellas, actuando y cantando con claridad, brillo, y con una profundidad de sentimiento y comprensión, que es subrayada magnificamente por la exquisita grabación de Teldec. Casi igualmente maravillosa es la dirección de Daniel Barenboim, que da absoluto sentido a la obra
Elektra by Richard Strauss( )

33 editions published between 1995 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 644 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the courtyard of the palace of Agamemnon, murdered king of Mycenae, Elektra bemoans her father's murder at the hands of her mother, Klytämnestra, and her mother's lover, Aegisth. She vows vengeance. She is interrupted by her younger sister, Chrysothemis, who urges Elektra to give up her obsession with revenge so they both can lead normal lives. Chrysothemis reappears with news that Orest is dead. Stunned, Elektra tells her sister she must now help kill Klytämnestra and Aegisth. When the girl pulls away in terror and runs off, Elektra starts to dig for the buried ax that killed Agamemnon. She is interrupted by a stranger who says he has come to inform Klytämnestra of Orest's death. When Elektra reveals her name, he tells her Orest lives. Servants come and kiss his hand. The dogs of the house know me, he says, but not my own sister. Crying his name, Elektra falls into Orest's arms and tells him she has lived only for his return. Their reunion is cut short when Orest is summoned before Klytämnestra. He kills both the queen and her lover. Elektra begins an ecstatic dance and when Chryothemis returns, Elektra falls dead
Samson et Dalila by Camille Saint-Saëns( )

23 editions published between 1992 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 576 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
