33 editions published between 1959 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Who could resist the tales of Hoffmann when ardent-voiced tenor Nicolai Gedda as the title hero of Offenbach's opera spins them? Combining dark German romanticism with scintillating music, the stories tell of the poet's ill-fated relationships with four women. Gedda is paired with the great singing actor George London as his constant nemesis. Jean Morel conducts this French masterpiece

Tosca by Giacomo Puccini( Recording )
55 editions published between 1959 and 2008 in 5 languages and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Tosca, the beautiful, glamorous singer who has all of Rome at her feet, is one of the iconic soprano roles of the Italian repertoire. She's caught between two men--her lover, the handsome, idealistic painter Cavaradossi, and the villainous Baron Scarpia, Rome's all-powerful chief of police, who will stop at nothing to win Tosca for himself. Puccini's story of torture, attempted rape, murder, suicide, and general mayhem is as thrilling and dramatic as anything seen on the operatic stage. Thanks to Eleanor Steber's impetuous title heroine, George London's malevolent Scarpia, and Carlo Bergonzi's romantic Cavaradossi, this Tosca still sends chills down your spine
Pelléas et Mélisande by Claude Debussy( Recording )
31 editions published between 1964 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Star conductor Simon Rattle leads a superb cast in this mesmerizing performance of Debussy's rarely staged opera. Stéphane Degout and Magdalena Kožená are the tragic title couple--lovers caught in a web of passion as strong as it is forbidden. Gerald Finley delivers a remarkable portrayal of Golaud, Mélisande's husband and Pelléas's half-brother, and Felicity Palmer is their mother, Geneviève. Willard White brings dramatic and vocal intensity to the brief but crucial role of the blind old king Arkel
