Most widely held works by Dimitri Mitropoulos
Vanessa by Samuel Barber( Sound Recording )
52 editions published between 1957 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 947 libraries worldwide
This broadcast, recorded just two weeks after Vanessa's Met world premiere, presents the original cast in spectacular form. Eleanor Steber is marvelous as the title heroine, a beautiful woman awaiting the return of her long-lost lover. But the man who arrives is his son, Anatol (a suave Nicolai Gedda). The handsome youth plays a dangerous emotional game of wooing both Vanessa and her niece Erika (an enchanting Rosalind Elias)--with devastating consequences. Regina Resnik stars as the Old Baroness and Giorgio Tozzi is the kind Doctor. Conductor Dimitri Mitropoulos gives an impassioned reading of Barber's superb score

In the courtyard of the palace of Agamemnon, murdered king of Mycenae, Elektra bemoans her father's murder at the hands of her mother, Klytämnestra, and her mother's lover, Aegisth. She vows vengeance. She is interrupted by her younger sister, Chrysothemis, who urges Elektra to give up her obsession with revenge so they both can lead normal lives. Chrysothemis reappears with news that Orest is dead. Stunned, Elektra tells her sister she must now help kill Klytämnestra and Aegisth. When the girl pulls away in terror and runs off, Elektra starts to dig for the buried ax that killed Agamemnon. She is interrupted by a stranger who says he has come to inform Klytämnestra of Orest's death. When Elektra reveals her name, he tells her Orest lives. Servants come and kiss his hand. The dogs of the house know me, he says, but not my own sister. Crying his name, Elektra falls into Orest's arms and tells him she has lived only for his return. Their reunion is cut short when Orest is summoned before Klytämnestra. He kills both the queen and her lover. Elektra begins an ecstatic dance and when Chryothemis returns, Elektra falls dead

Ernani [opera in four acts] by Giuseppe Verdi( Sound Recording )
30 editions published between 1956 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 196 libraries worldwide
Verdi's early opera is a romantic tour de force, brimming over with sizzling passion and swashbuckling drama. And this cast has the vocal opulence to bring it all to life. Mario Del Monaco is the nobleman-turned-bandit Ernani, who has been dreadfully wronged by the king (Leonard Warren). Both men are in love with Elvira (Zinka Milanov), who is about to be forced to wed her guardian (Cesare Siepi). Seldom has the honor of a Spanish gentleman demanded such an appalling cost

Wozzeck by Alban Berg( Sound Recording )
41 editions published between 1951 and 2007 in 5 languages and held by 181 libraries worldwide
James Levine, a longtime champion of this groundbreaking work, has conducted every Met performance of Wozzeck since 1974. He brings Berg's revolutionary score to dramatic life in this broadcast, leading an extraordinary cast headed by Christian Boesch and Hildegard Behrens. Boesch gives a heartbreaking performance as the poor, abused soldier of the title, and Behrens is stunning as his faithless and conflicted wife, Marie. Richard Cassilly sings the vain Drum Major who seduces her, and Ragnar Ulfung and Franz Mazura are the Captain and the Doctor, who mock and torture Wozzeck
Concerto no. 1 in D major, op. 6 by Nicolò Paganini( Sound Recording )
4 editions published in 2003 in No Linguistic Content and held by 180 libraries worldwide
Tosca by Giacomo Puccini( Sound Recording )
24 editions published between 1956 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 179 libraries worldwide
Sometimes everything clicks during a performance, and this Tosca is one of those rare moments. Three of the greatest singers in the world--Renata Tebaldi, Richard Tucker, and Leonard Warren--all in such spectacular voice, effortlessly convey every bit of Puccini's hair-raising drama. With Dimitri Mitropoulos bringing the orchestra and chorus into the same fever pitch as the singers, it's no wonder some operagoers say this Tosca is their standard for judging all others
