Manon by Jules Massenet ( Recording )
26 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 526 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Who can resist the charms of Manon or remain unmoved by her fate? Ruth Ann Swenson takes on Massenet's title heroine, the equally beautiful and high-spirited young girl who turns her back on life in a convent when she meets the handsome des Grieux (Giuseppe Sabbatini)--only to be seduced by the promise of a luxurious existence as the mistress of the rich old Brétigny (Kim Josephson). When she learns that des Grieux, desperate she has left him, is about to take holy orders, she changes her mind--but it is too late, and their love story ends in tragedy
Roméo et Juliette by Charles Gounod ( Recording )
36 editions published between 1998 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
No Roméo could possibly resist Mirella Freni's enchanting combination of appealing innocence and impulsiveness as Juliette. Her warm lyric voice glided over Juliette's phrases with a naturalness that brought the character to stunning life. Nicolai Gedda's Roméo was sensitive, ardent, and as stylish as they come. Together Freni and Gedda showed a new generation of operagoers why Gounod's opera is as enjoyable and heartbreaking as Shakespeare's play. John Macurdy is the helpful Friar Lawrence
Il trittico by Giacomo Puccini ( Recording )

Great tenors of the century ( Recording )
2 editions published in 1999 in No Linguistic content and Italian and held by 458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Werther [A lyric drama in four acts and five tableaux ; libretto by Edouard Blau, Paul Milliet, and Georges Hartmann, after Goethe] by Jules Massenet ( )
25 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Werther is one of the iconic figures in literature, an innocent young man who feels nature deeply and loves unreservedly. In Massenet's alluring operatic version, Alfredo Kraus magnificently captures every nuance of this complex character--his aristocratic bearing and pure soul, his anguish that the only woman he can love is promised to another man, and finally the despair that leads to his suicide. Frederica von Stade sings Charlotte, the woman who returns Werther's feelings but honors her promise to someone else. Dawn Upshaw is a sparkling Sophie, Charlotte's younger sister

L'elisir d'amore by Gaetano Donizetti ( Recording )
38 editions published between 1993 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Enchanting" is the word for this one. A charming and pert Bidú Sayô (Adina) has been ignoring poor Nemorino (Ferruccio Tagliavini), forcing him to take desperate measures to win her love. Salvatore Baccaloni is Dr. Dulcamara, a wily snake-oil salesman with a bogus "elixir of love" that he promises will do the trick. It eventually works, of course, but not before the sensational cast has made us laugh and touched our hearts

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

Carmen by Georges Bizet ( Visual )
10 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Richard Eyre's stunning new production of Bizet's opera was the talk of the town when it was unveiled on New Year's Eve 2009. Elīna Garanča leads the cast as the iconic gypsy of the title--a woman desired by every man but determined to remain true to herself. Roberto Alagna is Don José, the soldier who falls under her spell and sacrifices everything for her love, only to be cast aside when the toreador Escamillo (Teddy Tahu Rhodes) piques Carmen's interest. With dances created by star choreographer Christopher Wheeldon and conducted by rising maestro Yannick Nézet-Séguin, this Carmen brings every aspect of Bizet's tale to thrilling life, from its lighthearted beginning to its inevitably tragic climax
