Nerone: Tragedia in quattro atti. Completata di Arturo Toscanini
La forza del destino by Giuseppe Verdi( )

2 editions published in 2004 in Italian and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Verdi painted an immense canvas with this dark but tuneful opera. The legendary Leontyne Price is seen in one of her greatest roles, Leonora. Price's soaring voice encompasses every nuance of Leonora's emotion as she moves from joy through resignation to ultimate heartbreak. James Levine's brilliant leading of the Met orchestra and chorus is a lesson in Verdi style. Giuseppe Giacomini is Alvaro, the man Leonora loves, and Leo Nucci is Don Carlo, the dark instrument of their Fate

Francesca da Rimini by Riccardo Zandonai( Recording )

15 editions published between 1987 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This sumptuous production by Piero Faggioni (sets by Ezio Frigerio and costumes by Franca Squarciapino) seduced Met audiences into the enchanting world of Zandonai's rarely heard opera. His retelling of Dante's story of the immortal passion of Paolo and Francesca in 13th century Italy is as musically elegant and beautiful as the details of the production on stage. James Levine's fervent conducting galvanizes the fabulous cast: Renata Scotto and Plácido Domingo as the lovers with Cornell MacNeil as an appropriately brutal Giovanni

Falstaff : (highlights) by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

1 edition published in 1971 in Italian and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This series introduces, in words and music, the plot and background of the major operas. Using the principal themes and arias, taken from the Naxos recording of the complete work, Thomson Smillie is informative yet entertaining, enabling the listener to get more from this remarkable art form. Verdi's Falstaff repays careful study with real pleasure. It is opera's happiest irony that the great Italian master should cap a career -- distinguished for its blood-and-thunder tragic masterpieces -- with the greatest comic opera in the Italian repertory. The genius of Shakespeare is harnessed (in a miracle of compression) by master-librettist Boito to give the eighty-year-old Verdi a superb libretto, on which he lavished more wonderful tunes than most composers manage in a lifetime. Falstaff is the last great Italian comic opera and a worthy end to the tradition
