Otello by Giuseppe Verdi ( Recording )
1 edition published in 1996 in Italian and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The story: Act I. The action unfolds on Cyprus, under Venetian rule in the 16th century. The scene is outside the castle, residence of Otello, governor of the island, facing the port. It is night. A furious storm churns the sea, and a crowd of Venetian citizens and soldiers helplessly watch while the ship of the Moor Otello desperately tries to make it into port. Only Iago, one of Otello's men, does not participate in the general apprehension for the safety of his leader: he hates Otello, because Otello has promoted Cassio captain instead of him; he meditates revenge. The crowd is jubilant as Otello finally lands safely and announces that the Turkish fleet has been defeated. When the Moor enters the castle, the fireworks start and all drink to his victory. In the midst of the rejoicing, Iago starts to weave the scheme that will lead to his commander's downfall: he treacherously insinuates to Roderigo, who had revealed to Iago his love for Otello's wife, Desdemona, that Captain Cassio also feels the same affection for the woman. Then Iago gets Cassio drunk, and incites a fight between the two men, but the dangerous duel that starts between them is stopped by Montano. However, the peacemaker is wounded by Cassio. Iago sounds the alarm, swelling the episode out of proportion until the crowd is in tumult. Called back by the shouts and noise, Otello, falsely informed by Iago, punishes Cassio and demotes him. This is a first victory for Iago, who exults

Manon Lescaut by Giacomo Puccini ( Recording )
1 edition published in 1998 and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This was the opera that first brought Puccini fame--and in this passionate performance, starring Raina Kabaivanska in the title role opposite Richard Tucker as des Grieux, it's easy to see why. The two characters' tumultuous relationship sends off musical sparks, as both of their lives are invariably altered by the experience. After a chance meeting, Manon and des Grieux's idyllic life in poverty is short-lived as she begins to crave the luxury offered by other suitors. In the end, she dies a destitute woman, with the faithful des Grieux by her side--even though his unwavering love for her has ruined his life as well
