La Gioconda by Amilcare Ponchielli( )

21 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With Renata Tebaldi wringing every bit of drama out of the title role, there are plenty of opportunities for goose bumps here. Add to that Carlo Bergonzi's glowing portrayal of the Enzo, the man she loves and the impassioned Fiorenza Cossotto as the woman he loves, plus one jealous husband (Bonaldo Giaiotti), and an Inquisition spy (Cornell MacNeil) bent on revenge, and you have operatic extravagance at its wonderful best, all set in romantic, mysterious 17th century Venice

Parsifal : [ein Bühnenweihfestspiel] by Richard Wagner( )

12 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The mystical enchantment of Wagner's last opera means it has special place in the hearts of opera lovers. On the surface, it's the story of Parsifal's quest to restore the Holy Grail. But for many listeners it is also a profound inner journey that takes them to a unique place. James Levine's conducting of the work has become legendary, and our all-star cast, with Plácido Domingo in the title role, is on the same exalted plane. Violeta Urmana is the temptress Kundry and Ekkehard Wlaschiha is the evil magician Klingsor

Don Carlo : opera in four acts by Giuseppe Verdi( Visual )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Verdi's tragic opera epitomizes human passions; according to Maestro Riccardo Chailly, it is "the darkest piece ever written." In order to establish peace between France and the Spanish Empire, a royal wedding is planned between Don Carlo, Infant of Spain and Elisabetta di Valois, daughter of Henry II. They fall in love on their first meeting in the Fontainebleau forest. For political reasons, it is in fact Carlo's father Fillipe II, son of the Emperor Carlos V and king of Spain who will mary the French princess. While a story of sentimental desolation unfolds, political tensions are also at work in the Flemish part of the Empire. Inquisition and tyranny are raging and Don Carlo sides in favor of the independence of the oppressed region. The tragic conflict reaches its climax when Don Carlo threatens his father with his sword. Rolando Villazón embodies the young prince, rebelling against his father's familial and political authority. The stage direction features a strong christian iconography which sets the opera back in its religious context of 16th century catholic Spain. The cross also symbolizes the "power of the father over the son" which is the main theme of this opera according to Willy Decker

11 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in German and No Linguistic content and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stabat Mater by Giovanni Battista Pergolesi( )

5 editions published in 2004 in Latin and Undetermined and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Opening the disc is Vivaldi's brief Sonata al Santo Sepolcro, an instrumental work probably intended for inclusion in an Easter church service. This is followed by a Stabat Mater proper, also by Vivaldi. Vivaldi used just the first ten verses of the text, creating one of the most sombre of all settings, here performed by the Canadian ensemble Theatre of Early Music and its director, counter-tenor Daniel Taylor, who in Bach is joined by Emma Kirkby, taking on the soprano part
Symphony no. 9 by Gustav Mahler( )

2 editions published in 2000 in German and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Dresden Staatskapelle has a very special tradition of performing Ludwig van Beethoven's Ninth Symphony. It performed the then still highly controversial work for the first time in August 1838 under the baton of Johann Gottlieb Reissiger. Since 1900, the piece has been performed yearly on Palm Sunday, having been popularized by Richard Wagner in 1843
Parsifal : the search for the Grail by Richard Wagner( Visual )

10 editions published between 1998 and 2012 in German and English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Messa da Requiem by Giuseppe Verdi( )

10 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in Latin and German and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This extraordinary performance of Verdi's unforgettable Requiem features a dream cast: soprano Leontyne Price, equally acclaimed for her soaring phrasing and the nobility with which she sings the words, is joined by Plácido Domingo, one of the great Verdi tenors of his generation, distinguished mezzo-soprano Florence Quivar, and magnificent bass John Cheek. Under James Levine's inspired conducting, the Met Orchestra and Chorus deliver a thrilling account of this breathtaking score
