Werther [A lyric drama in four acts and five tableaux ; libretto by Edouard Blau, Paul Milliet, and Georges Hartmann, after Goethe] by Jules Massenet( )

26 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 598 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thomas Hampson offers a rare opportunity to hear the baritone version of this opera's title part, as arranged by Massenet for the legendary Mattia Battistini. Werther's tragedy, when performed by a baritone rather than a tenor, takes on an even darker hue. Hampson's moving portrayal brings out all the idealism, melancholy, and eventual despair of the character over the loss of his beloved Charlotte, sung by Susan Graham. Graham gives an equally heart-rending performance as the young woman torn between her love for the romantic Werther and her promise to marry Albert (Christopher Robertson). Rebecca Evans is Charlotte's innocent younger sister, Sophie, and Donald Runnicles conducts

Thaïs by Jules Massenet( Recording )

23 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Take one ascetic monk named Athanaël and one ravishingly beautiful courtesan named Thaïs, add Massenet's sensual, melodious music, with equal dashes of eroticism and religious fervor--and you have a powerful opera that is at once a celebration of the sacred and the profane, of flesh and soul. This rarity had not been heard at the Met for almost 40 years when it was brought back as a vehicle for the great soprano Beverly Sills and the magnetic singing actor Sherrill Milnes. Together, they masterfully bring to life the searing conflict at the heart of the drama
