Otello by Giuseppe Verdi( Sound Recording )

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

Macbeth by Giuseppe Verdi( file )
80 editions published between 1970 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 1,124 libraries worldwide
Verdi's crackling version of Shakespeare's monumental play attracts singers and conductors who are willing to take risks in pursuit of drama. With James Levine's taut conducting, the dimensions and colors of Verdi's score are revealed, galvanizing Sherrill Milnes (Macbeth) and Renata Scotto (Lady Macbeth). Milnes's strong baritone gives imposing dimensions to Macbeth, and the way Scotto combines the words with the music demonstrates why some people say Lady Macbeth is really the leading character

Verdi painted an immense canvas with this dark but tuneful opera. The legendary Leontyne Price is seen in one of her greatest roles, Leonora. Price's soaring voice encompasses every nuance of Leonora's emotion as she moves from joy through resignation to ultimate heartbreak. James Levine's brilliant leading of the Met orchestra and chorus is a lesson in Verdi style. Giuseppe Giacomini is Alvaro, the man Leonora loves, and Leo Nucci is Don Carlo, the dark instrument of their Fate

This astonishing cast introduced Vespri to Met audiences only a few weeks before this broadcast and opera lovers fought for tickets to hear in person what all the excitement was about. James Levine's conducting was as passionate as it was authoritative, and the singers responded with performances that are still talked about with awe. Montserrat Caballé is lustrous as Elena, the young woman whose marriage to Arrigo (Nicolai Gedda) ignites a bloodbath. Sherrill Milnes is in top form as Monforte, the hated oppressor, who turns out to be much more than he seems

And then to travel the world, singing in historic theaters from La Scala in Milan to Vienna, Paris, London, and beyond? What does it take to be hailed as one of the great operatic baritones of all times, heir to a tradition of Verdi baritones that stretches back for generations?

This book tells the entire story in warm, engaging prose. For anyone interested in the mystique of opera - and what really goes on behind and in front of the scenes - it makes fascinating reading.
