Otello by Giuseppe Verdi( Sound Recording )
28 editions published between 1978 and 2013 in Italian and English and held by 1,209 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

La Sonnambula by Vincenzo Bellini( Sound Recording )

"La Sonnambula" (The Sleepwalker) was first produced at the Teatro Careano, Milan, in March 1831. The libretto, by Romani, the foremost Italian librettist of the time, sets forth a rather childish if simple and natural story of lowly life in a Swiss village. The heroine, Amina, is a rustic damsel who walks in her sleep. Rodolfo, the young lord of the village, has just returned from abroad, and Amina, in her sleep, enters his room at the inn. Amina's wedding to Elvino, a wealthy landowner, was just about to be celebrated. But now the jealous Lisa, the pretty hostess of the inn, denounces Amina, and herself gains the temporary regard of Elvino. Rodolfo proclaims Amina's innocence, but nobody believes him until Amina is seen walking in her sleep, this time over a slim bridge above the mill-wheel. Her innocence is thus confirmed, and the conventional happy ending is assured

Esclarmonde by Jules Massenet( Sound Recording )
23 editions published between 1976 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 585 libraries worldwide
Parisian audiences in 1889 were thrilled by Massenet's wizardry in telling the story of Esclarmonde, the princess of Byzantium with magical powers, and her love for the heroic knight Roland. But the title role was so difficult that the opera languished for decades, until Joan Sutherland, with her dazzling ability to sing the most fearsome embellishments, brought this jewel of an opera to life for modern audiences
La Gioconda by Amilcare Ponchielli( Sound Recording )
17 editions published between 1981 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 562 libraries worldwide
With Renata Tebaldi wringing every bit of drama out of the title role, there are plenty of opportunities for goose bumps here. Add to that Carlo Bergonzi's glowing portrayal of the Enzo, the man she loves and the impassioned Fiorenza Cossotto as the woman he loves, plus one jealous husband (Bonaldo Giaiotti), and an Inquisition spy (Cornell MacNeil) bent on revenge, and you have operatic extravagance at its wonderful best, all set in romantic, mysterious 17th century Venice

This performance features the legendary African-American contralto Marian Anderson in her history-making Met debut role of Ulrica, the fortune-teller. At first her predictions are all good news.

But he loves Amelia (Zinka Milanov), the wife of his friend Renato (Robert Merrill). And when Renato discovers them together, he joins the plot against the king. This is Verdian passion at its best
