Most widely held works by René Pape
Tristan und Isolde by Richard Wagner ( Visual )
29 editions published between 1999 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Wagner's retelling of the ancient tale of all consuming love that knows no boundaries is one of the greatest operas ever written. The orchestra is as much a part of the story as the singers on stage, and under James Levine's inspired leadership the Met orchestra gives one of its greatest performances--by turns yearning, raging, tender, fiery, and always playing with astonishing beauty. The remarkable Ben Heppner (Tristan) and Jane Eaglen (Isolde) are the lovers ensnared by a love beyond their control. René Pape is the anguished King Marke, betrayed by the two people he most loves
Fidelio by Ludwig van Beethoven ( Visual )
11 editions published between 2000 and 2006 in German and Italian and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A performance of Fidelio, Ludwig van Beethoven's only opera. The story dramatizes plight that befalls Florestan, the only political dissident brave enough to openly criticize the criminal misdeeds of governor Don Pizarro
Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg by Richard Wagner ( Recording )
23 editions published between 1994 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Not many companies have the resources to put on Wagner's only comedy with all the élan it deserves. The Met does, particularly when Music Director James Levine is conducting: his affection for the work is matched only by his skill at bringing it to life. Levine leads a top-flight cast of solo singers, plus a huge chorus and orchestra. James Morris conveys all of Hans Sachs wisdom, and humanity; Karita Mattila sparkles as Eva, the young woman in love with Walther, the impetuous knight, ardently sung by Ben Heppner
Tristan und Isolde by Brian Large ( Visual )
5 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in German and held by 330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A presentation of Wagner's opera about the fatal voyage which Tristan, a vassal to the court of King Marke, makes to Ireland to bring back Isolde as the king's bride. On the return voyage Tristan and Isolde drink by mistake a love potion, which binds them irrevocably to each other. The story resolves itself into a series of love intrigues in which the two lovers ingeniously outwit the king

Among Wagner's mature operas, this is the only comedy. It is based on a true story of the guild of Meistersingers (Master singers). The town goldsmith announces that the winner of the Midsummer's Day song contest will win his daughter, but must also be or become a Mastersinger. The cobbler Hans Sachs (an actual historical figure) helps Walther compose a Mastersong with which to defeat his rival Beckmesser and win Eva

14 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 222 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
Parsifal [ein Bühnenweihfestspiel] by Richard Wagner ( )
9 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in German and Undetermined and held by 209 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
