Siegfried by Richard Wagner( Recording )

27 editions published between 1937 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is one of the legendary performances from the Met's vast archive of historic broadcasts. The incomparable Lauritz Melchior stars in the title role of the young hero who sets out to explore the world--killing the fierce dragon Fafner (Eduard Habich) and the evil dwarf Mime (Karl Laufkötter) along the way. When Wotan (the great Friedrich Schorr) tries to stop him, Siegfried uses his sword to break the god's spear and makes his way to the sleeping Brünnhilde (a radiant Kirsten Flagstad). He awakens her with a kiss--and sets in motion the events that, in the following opera, will bring about the end of the world. Kerstin Thorborg co-stars as Erda and Artur Bodanzky conducts

Der Rosenkavalier by Richard Strauss( Recording )

14 editions published between 1978 and 1999 in 3 languages and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Karl Bohm's only studio version of the work was recorded in 1958. When Deutsche Grammophon originally planned to record the work, there were already two rival versions on the market: the Decca recording under Erich Kleiber and EMI's version under Herbert von Karajan. Karajan's recording was made in December 1956 and should have included Irmgard Seefried as Octavian and Rita Streich as Sophie, but in both cases cast changes became necessary: Seefried was replaced by the young Christa Ludwig, and pregnancy forced Rita Streich to withdraw. As a result, Deutsche Grammophon was able to use both these singers for its own recording exactly two years later. It boasts a wonderful cast, with the full-throated Marianne Schech as the Marschallin, Irmgard Seefried bringing a range of colour to the 'trouser' role of Octavian, Rita Streich light and exquisite as Sophie, and a rounded, lyrical portrait of Faninal from Fischer-Dieskau. The recording also reunited Bohm with his 'old' orchestra, the Dresden Staatskapelle, an orchestra often referred to as the Zauberharfe or Magic Harp for the fluent and airborne quality of its sound
Tristan und Isolde by Richard Wagner( Recording )

19 editions published between 1935 and 2013 in German and Undetermined and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The pairing of Kirsten Flagstad and Lauritz Melchior in the title roles of Wagner's Tristan und Isolde is among the most celebrated artistic collaborations in the history of 20th-century opera.

Karin Branzell is Brangäne, Julius Huehn sings Kurwenal, and Emanuel List is King Marke, with Artur Bodanzky on the podium.This performance is taken from the CD box set Wagner at The Met, released by Sony Classical
Götterdämmerung by Richard Wagner( Recording )

16 editions published between 1936 and 2013 in German and Undetermined and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This legendary broadcast begins deep in the mists of myth, with the Fates weaving the destiny of the world--and ends with nothing less than its cataclysmic destruction. Love, betrayal, magic potions, and nefarious plotting all combine in this epic finale of Wagner's Ring cycle. This performance features a radiant Marjorie Lawrence as Brünnhilde, who electrified the audience by actually jumping onto her horse and triumphantly riding off the stage at the end of her glorious immolation scene. Lauritz Melchior's heroic Siegfried is the standard against which all others are measured
