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."
Guillaume Tell by Gioacchino Rossini( )

3 editions published in 2011 in French and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pierre Audi's new production of Guillaume Tell marked the first appearance of Rossini's final operatic masterpiece on the Met stage for nearly 85 years. Composed for the Paris Opera in 1829 and based on a play by Schiller, Guillaume Tell uses thrilling vocals, grand ballets, and magnificent choruses to tell the story of Swiss patriots throwing off the yoke of Austrian oppression. Baritone Gerald Finley sings the title role, lending great dignity to his character with his commanding yet beautiful singing. As the heroic youth Arnold, tenor Bryan Hymel excites with one blazing high note after another, opposite the spellbinding soprano Marina Rebeka as the conflicted Hapsburg princess Mathilde. John Relyea is the malevolent Austrian governor Gesler, and Janai Brugger shines as Tell's spirited son Jemmy. Fabio Luisi conducts a lively account of Rossini's score, beginning with its famously explosive overture

Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti( )

12 editions published between 1960 and 2001 in Italian and Undetermined and held by 282 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

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 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
