Norma by Vincenzo Bellini ( Recording )
9 editions published in 2013 in Italian and Undetermined and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this complete studio recording of a newly prepared critical edition -- the first on period instruments -- Giovanni Antonini and Cecilia Bartoli reveal Norma's authentic pre-Romantic roots and return to Bellini's original conception. The role of Norma was written for Giuditta Pasta, who sang what today's listeners would consider to be mezzo-soprano roles, while Adalgisa was conceived for a light silvery soprano. With Cecilia Bartoli and Sumi Jo heard here for the first time on record together, this iconic opera has been restored as Bellini originally intended."--Container

La sonnambula by Vincenzo Bellini ( Visual )
9 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Bellini's romantic opera 'La sonnambula' (1831), hinges on the love and misunderstanding between Elvino and Amina (the 'sleepwalker' of the title). Discovered in the bedroom of Rodolfo, Amina is assumed to have been unfaithful, and Elvino cancels their wedding. But in the dramatic final scene, he witnesses Amina sleepwalking, understands her innocence, and all ends happily. Mary Zimmerman's production plays with the dual realities of a rehearsal of the opera and a performance of the opera itself. In his latest Decca DVD release, bel canto star Juan Diego Flórez assumes the role of Elvino in Bellini's romantic drama, playing opposite the mercurial French soprano, Natalie Dessay, in the MET's striking, modern-dress production, screening live worldwide in March 2009. The MET's 'La Sonnambula' website reads: "Mary Zimmerman, who directed Natalie Dessay in last season's hit new production of Lucia di Lammermoor, underlines La Sonnambula's dual elements of sleep and wakefulness in an intriguing staging set in the present. Bellini's hauntingly lyrical score soars as performed by Dessay and Juan Diego Flórez, back from their sensational run together in La Fille du Régiment in leading opera houses around the world."The DVD release will benefit from the addition of the customary MET backstage and interview footage, familiar to devotees of their live worldwide cinema broadcasts. Following Flórez's latest DVD release (Cenerentola, in October 2009), 2010 will also see a second Flórez DVD - Bellini's 'I Puritani', with Nino Machaidze, from Bologna

Among the few who have remained behind is Comte Ory, a young nobleman intent on seducing as many women as he can. His eye is on the virtuous Countess Adèle in particular, and he disguises himself and takes up residence outside her castle. When his cover is blown, he boldly decides to make another attempt at conquest by dressing up as a nun
Thaïs by Jules Massenet ( )
2 editions published in 2003 in French and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Take one ascetic monk named Athanaël and one ravishingly beautiful courtesan named Thaïs, add Massenet's sensual, melodious music, with equal dashes of eroticism and religious fervor--and you have a powerful opera that is at once a celebration of the sacred and the profane, of flesh and soul. This rarity had not been heard at the Met for almost 40 years when it was brought back as a vehicle for the great soprano Beverly Sills and the magnetic singing actor Sherrill Milnes. Together, they masterfully bring to life the searing conflict at the heart of the drama

Le nozze di Figaro by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart ( Recording )
2 editions published in 1994 in Italian and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Preparing for their wedding, the valet Figaro learns from the maid Susanna that their philandering employer, Count Almaviva, has designs on her. In her boudoir, the Countess laments her husband's waning love but plots to chasten him, encouraged by Figaro and Susanna. Susanna leads the Count on with promises of a rendezvous in the garden. Alone later that day, Susanna rhapsodizes on her love for Figaro, but he, overhearing, thinks she means the Count. Almaviva chases Cherubino away and sends his wife, who he thinks is Susanna, to an arbor, to which he follows. By now Figaro understands the joke and, joining the fun, makes exaggerated love to Susanna in her Countess disguise. The Count returns, seeing, or so he thinks, Figaro with his wife. Outraged, he calls everyone to witness his judgment, but now the real Countess appears and reveals the ruse. Grasping the truth at last, the Count begs her pardon
