Giuseppe Verdi's Otello: In what many believe to be the finest production of Othello in modern times, Plácido Domingo and Kiri Te Kanawa lead a world-class cast under the exquisite musical direction of Sir Georg Solti. An outstanding performance of the first of Verdi's two late Shakespearian operas, universally regarded as sublime masterpieces of grand opera. Placido Domingo and Kiri Te Kanawa lead an outstanding cast in this production of Giuseppe Verdi's operatic adaptation of Shakespeare's tragedy Othello. The moor Otello (Domingo), proclaimed a hero after a great military victory, is driven by jealousy to murder when his devious comrade-in-arms Iago (Sergei Leiferkus) leads him (without cause) to doubt the fidelity of his wife, Desdemona (Te Kanawa). Georg Solti conducts the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, under the leadership of Bradley Creswick

Ariadne auf Naxos by Richard Strauss( visu )
8 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 159 libraries worldwide
Elijah Moshinsky's witty production deftly walks the line between the lighthearted humor and the profound philosophical underpinnings of Strauss and Hofmannsthal's opera, masterfully conducted here by Met Music Director James Levine. Deborah Voigt stars as Ariadne, the mythical heroine abandoned on the island of Naxos by her lover, and Richard Margison is Bacchus, the young god who eventually takes her away to a new life. The spectacular Natalie Dessay as Zerbinetta leads the troupe of comedians who unsuccessfully try to cheer Ariadne up. Susanne Mentzer is delightful as the young Composer of the opera-within-the-opera, and Wolfgang Brendel sings the Music Master
