Don Carlo by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

124 editions published between 1965 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 1,483 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It takes an opera company with a depth of resources and talent to do justice to Verdi's monumental, grand opera. Under James Levine's authoritative and impassioned direction, René Pape gives a monumental portrayal of King Philip, who must come to grips with the consequences of his actions: marrying Elizabeth (Patricia Racette) when she had been promised to his son, Don Carlo (Johan Botha), who opposes Philip politically. Olga Borodina is a sumptuous Eboli, Elizabeth's rival, and Dmitri Hvorostovsky is magnetic as Carlo's best friend Rodrigo
Faust by Charles Gounod( Recording )

34 editions published between 1966 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 1,443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

René Pape's swaggering Mephistophélès is as seductive as it is demonic in this story of Faust (Roberto Alagna) who sells his soul to the devil to reclaim his youth. Wasting no time, Faust falls in love with Marguerite (Solie Isokoski) but things soon begin to go horribly wrong. Her brother (Dmitri Hvorostovvsky) is murdered, she goes insane, and Faust is dragged to hell. But the music is unforgettable

Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti( Recording )

71 editions published between 1972 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 1,133 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

The role of Simon Boccanegra is one of the capstones of Verdi's baritone repertoire. Sherrill Milnes gives a stunning portrayal of the 14th century Genoa doge, singing with both power and poetry, and reminding everyone why audiences acclaimed him the great American Verdi baritone of the day. Anna Tomowa-Sintow is Amelia, his long-lost daughter, in love with one of Boccanegra's most bitter political enemies. James Levine reveals his passion for Verdi's score, bringing out all the drama while reveling in its aching lyricism

She stars alongside an ensemble of favorite Met artists, including tenor Jerry Hadley as the idealistic poet Lenski and bass Nicolai Ghiaurov as Tatiana's dignified husband, Prince Gremin. And, having made his Met debut only days earlier, Russian baritone Sergei Leiferkus completes the cast as the self-assured title character, who discovers too late his great love for Tatiana
