Mignon by Ambroise Thomas( Recording )

37 editions published between 1970 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 622 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this performance, the sensational Risë Stevens sings one of her signature roles, the shy but loving Mignon. It's a true operatic rarity, not heard at the Met since Stevens last did it in 1949, and it overflows with astonishing musical variety. The opera has at least two roles dear to the hearts of great singing actors: Mignon, and old Lothario, who turns out to be her father - here the superb Ezio Pinza in a stellar performance. Mimi Benzell is the flirtatious Philine, and James Melton is Wilhelm Meister, Mignon's true love

(Scene: A shore on the island of Ceylon in antiquity) In anticipation of the fishing season, the villagers elect Zurga as their king and prepare their annual vigil to ensure safe seas. Zurga welcomes Nadir, his long-time friend, whom he has not seen since their love for the same woman divided them. They promise eternal friendship and vow never again to allow a woman to come between them. Within moments, a woman arrives, veiled. She will stand through the night, alone on the shore, in ritual prayer. Zurga promises her a priceless pearl if she is chaste in her duty and death if she violates her purity. Nadir recognizes her voice. It is Léïla, the woman he and Zurga loved in the past, and his feelings for her are rekindled

Lucrezia Borgia by Gaetano Donizetti( Recording )

9 editions published between 1965 and 2001 in Italian and held by 90 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'
