In this ensemble effort par excellence, all five principals ... are in admirable form.

Who could resist the tales of Hoffmann when ardent-voiced tenor Nicolai Gedda as the title hero of Offenbach's opera spins them? Combining dark German romanticism with scintillating music, the stories tell of the poet's ill-fated relationships with four women. Gedda is paired with the great singing actor George London as his constant nemesis. Jean Morel conducts this French masterpiece

An all-star cast--Birgit Nilsson, Jean Madeira, Richard Tucker, and Robert Merrill--brings Verdi's towering tragedy to life in this dramatic performance. Nilsson is Amelia, the young woman trapped in an impossible dilemma: she loves Riccardo, the governor (Tucker), whose closest friend and advisor is her husband, Renato (Merrill). When Renato discovers her secret, he joins a conspiracy to kill Riccardo. Add the dire predictions of the fortuneteller Ulrica (Madeira), and you have one of opera's most powerful dramas.

(Scene: A shore on the island of Ceylon in antiquity) In anticipation of the fishing season, the villagers elect Zurga as their king and prepare their annual vigil to ensure safe seas. Zurga welcomes Nadir, his long-time friend, whom he has not seen since their love for the same woman divided them. They promise eternal friendship and vow never again to allow a woman to come between them. Within moments, a woman arrives, veiled. She will stand through the night, alone on the shore, in ritual prayer. Zurga promises her a priceless pearl if she is chaste in her duty and death if she violates her purity. Nadir recognizes her voice. It is Léïla, the woman he and Zurga loved in the past, and his feelings for her are rekindled
