With her gripping portrayal of Anne Boleyn, soprano Sondra Radvanovsky launched her season-long quest to sing all three of Donizetti's Tudor queen operas. She conquers the extraordinary musical and dramatic demands the composer makes, starring opposite an equally impressive Ildar Abdrazakov as Henry VIII, Anne's king and husband, whose need for a son leaves him prey to lies spread about Anne by her enemies—with tragic consequences. Stephen Costello is Lord Richard Percy, Anne's former lover, Milijana Nikolic sings Jane Seymour, Anne's lady-in-waiting who has caught the king's eye. Tamara Mumford is Mark Smeaton, the queen's page who is also in love with her. Marco Armiliato conducts

Presents the action of the opera, based on the play by David Belasco, set at the height of the notorious Californian Gold Rush; this opera represents "a major advance on Puccini's previous work, especially in the careful interweaving of Western elements into an altogether larger canvas than anything he had tackled before."

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 who would believe the best friend of the king would actually murder him? Absurd. That's what the king (Jan Peerce) thinks. 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

La forza del destino by Giuseppe Verdi( Sound Recording )
13 editions published between 1960 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 18 libraries worldwide
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
Parsifal : [ein Bühnenweihfestspiel] by Richard Wagner( Sound Recording )
7 editions published between 1984 and 2012 in German and Undetermined and held by 18 libraries worldwide
Wagner's mystical opera makes extraordinary demands on the conductor, but James Levine is renowned for the special affection and authority he brings to this transcendent work. The music shimmers and glows, evoking the legendary world of the Knights of the Holy Grail and the pure fool who brings healing power to the land. Peter Hofmann stars as the questing title hero, Jerome Hines sings the wise old man, Gurnemanz, and Mignon Dunn is the voluptuous Kundry, whose erotic temptations almost ensnare the young hero
Il ritorno by Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy( Sound Recording )
in Undetermined and Italian and held by 18 libraries worldwide
Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti( Sound Recording )
4 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in Italian and German and held by 17 libraries worldwide
This is Maria Callas's only broadcast from the stage of the Met. Hearing "La Divina" in an actual performance is a unique thrill, and Lucia is a huge part of the palpable Callas mystique. Donizetti's bloody tale of the Scottish lass torn from her true love and forced into an arranged marriage, only to go mad and murder her bridegroom on their wedding night, was the perfect vehicle for Callas's wizardry. Her haunting voice simply becomes Lucia's--every facet of emotion so pronounced that we cannot escape her spell

2 editions published in 1977 in Italian and held by 16 libraries worldwide
