This performance features the legendary African-American contralto Marian Anderson in her history-making Met debut role of Ulrica, the fortune-teller. At first her predictions are all good news. But who would believe the best friend of the king would actually murder him? Absurd. That's what the king (Jan Peerce) thinks. But he loves Amelia (Zinka Milanov), the wife of his friend Renato (Robert Merrill). And when Renato discovers them together, he joins the plot against the king. This is Verdian passion at its best

Il trovatore by Giuseppe Verdi ( )
37 editions published between 1964 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
One of Verdi's most popular operas receives a blazingly dramatic performance by a sensational cast: Montserrat Caballé is Leonora, the young noblewoman caught between two feuding archenemies: her beloved, the troubadour and rebel leader Manrico (Plácido Domingo), and the aristocratic, villainous Count di Luna (Robert Merrill). Fiorenza Cossotto is Azucena, the passionate gypsy whose actions, years before, set the dramatic events in motion

Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti ( Recording )
55 editions published between 1960 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is Maria Callas's only broadcast from the stage of the Met. Hearing "La Divina" in an actual performance is a unique thrill, and Lucia is a huge part of the palpable Callas mystique. Donizetti's bloody tale of the Scottish lass torn from her true love and forced into an arranged marriage, only to go mad and murder her bridegroom on their wedding night, was the perfect vehicle for Callas's wizardry. Her haunting voice simply becomes Lucia's--every facet of emotion so pronounced that we cannot escape her spell

29 editions published between 1960 and 2002 in 4 languages and held by 313 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
