Macbeth by Giuseppe Verdi( Sound Recording )
34 editions published between 1959 and 2012 in Italian and English and held by 877 libraries worldwide
Verdi's masterful setting of Shakespeare's famous tragedy is filled with dark colors and vivid emotions. The music brilliantly depicts the souls of troubled Macbeth and his conniving, relentless wife. Bringing Verdi's vision to life requires not only great singers, but great actors as well--Cornell MacNeil and Irene Dalis excel in the challenge. From the first encounter with the witches to the murder of the King and the gradual disintegration of their souls, this couple masterfully conveys all the horror and pathos both Verdi and Shakespeare intended
La traviata by Giuseppe Verdi( file )
34 editions published between 1935 and 2015 in Italian and No Linguistic Content and held by 860 libraries worldwide
Verdi's immortal tragedy about the clash of true love with social convention has seldom been as poignant as in this broadcast. The sensational Italian tenor Giuseppe Di Stefano, in his second season at the Met, offers his first Alfredo with the company--a tender, romantic, and gorgeously sung performance that perfectly matches Eleanor Steber's sumptuous and touching Violetta. Robert Merrill, heard here at the beginning of his career, would go on to make the role of Germont one of his calling cards

43 editions published between 1900 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 682 libraries worldwide
The story might be classic and eternal, but it's always fresh--especially with a cast like this one. As Mimì and Rodolfo, Licia Albanese and Giuseppe Di Stefano will make you feel like you're falling in love for the very first time. The headiness of the first meeting, the almost unbearable pain of parting, the poignancy of reconciliation--it's all conveyed with a vividness that will thrill and then break your heart. Hilde Gueden sparkles as the tempestuous Musetta, who sets her cap for Frank Guarrera (Marcello). The great Cesare Siepi is Colline

With James Levine's masterful conducting, Mozart's sublime score works its colorful magic in this upstairs/downstairs drama.
