Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti( Recording )

984 editions published between 1898 and 2014 in 10 languages and held by 8,622 WorldCat member 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

La favorita by Gaetano Donizetti( Recording )

182 editions published between 1903 and 2011 in 7 languages and held by 1,378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This spectacular cast makes any listener wonder why such a marvelous, colorful opera isn't much better known. Sensational Shirley Verrett is Leonora, the beautiful, mysterious lady who so completely captures the heart of the monk Fernando (Luciano Pavarotti at his finest) that he forsakes his calling to defeat the Moors in battle in order to win her hand. Alas, she is the mistress of the king (Sherrill Milnes), who is so besotted with her he is determined to defy the pope himself to make Leonora his queen. It's a tragic opera, so no one wins--except the audience

153 editions published between 1897 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 1,253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on Victor Hugo's most sensational play, 'Lucrece Borgia', a scandalous tale of murder, torture, incest, homosexuality, drunkenness and orgies, Donizetti's opera is one of the great masterpieces of Italian 'bel canto' repertoire. While omitting some of its more excessive elements, the libretto by Felice Romani inspired Donizetti to compose superb arias, duets, ensembles and choruses, bringing each act to a stirring conclusion. Brimming with high drama and pathos, this production stars Greek diva Dimitra Theodossiou in the infamous title role, praised for her stupendous acting and singing as England's Queen Elizabeth I in Donizetti's 'Roberto Devereux'

By the time of the opera's action, in the late 17th century, Enrico's fortunes have begun to wane; in political disfavor, he stakes all on uniting his family with that of Arturo, whom he means to force his sister, Lucia, to marry."--Container
