Most widely held works by Ivo Vinco
La Gioconda by Amilcare Ponchielli( )

49 editions published between 1952 and 2007 in 5 languages and held by 887 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With Renata Tebaldi wringing every bit of drama out of the title role, there are plenty of opportunities for goose bumps here. Add to that Carlo Bergonzi's glowing portrayal of the Enzo, the man she loves and the impassioned Fiorenza Cossotto as the woman he loves, plus one jealous husband (Bonaldo Giaiotti), and an Inquisition spy (Cornell MacNeil) bent on revenge, and you have operatic extravagance at its wonderful best, all set in romantic, mysterious 17th century Venice

Il trovatore by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

42 editions published between 1963 and 2007 in 5 languages and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of Verdi's most popular operas receives a blazingly dramatic performance by a sensational cast: Montserrat Caballé is Leonora, the young noblewoman caught between two feuding archenemies: her beloved, the troubadour and rebel leader Manrico (Plácido Domingo), and the aristocratic, villainous Count di Luna (Robert Merrill). Fiorenza Cossotto is Azucena, the passionate gypsy whose actions, years before, set the dramatic events in motion

Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti( Recording )

22 editions published between 1960 and 2013 in Italian and Undetermined and held by 111 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

Puccini's bittersweet opera of high-spirited bohemians and the doomed love between Rodolfo, the idealistic poet and Mimi, the consumptive flower-maker, is a beautifully balanced series of tableaux depicting the infectious joie de vivre of youth and the tragic waste of disease and separation

Before she can do this, the Druid temple priests apprehend Pollione as he attempts to abscond with their sacred virgin, Adalgisa. The priests build a pyre to burn Pollione to death. Norma relents.
