Most widely held works by Frederica Von Stade
Le nozze di Figaro by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( Recording )

78 editions published between 1974 and 2012 in 7 languages and held by 1,673 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With James Levine's masterful conducting, Mozart's sublime score works its colorful magic in this upstairs/downstairs drama. Ruggero Raimondi (Figaro) and Kathleen Battle (Susannah) are the servants, caught up in the ongoing domestic drama of the Count and Countess (Thomas Allen and Carol Vaness). Only all is not what it seems, and the battle lines keep shifting in the most unexpected ways. Frederica von Stade is Cherubino, the young page body who's in love with love and who keeps complicating everyone's best laid plans at exactly the wrong times
Pelléas et Mélisande by Claude Debussy( )

59 editions published between 1979 and 2017 in 6 languages and held by 1,241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James Levine's affection for Debussy's masterful score creates a performance rich in orchestral and vocal colors, with all the subtle emotional shifts of the drama vividly brought to life. The magnificent Frederica von Stade is Mélisande, in a production staged for her 25th Met anniversary. Victor Braun and Dwayne Croft are half-brothers Golaud and Pelléas--one Mélisande's husband, the other her lover. Marilyn Horne brings her sumptuous voice to the role of Geneviève, Pelléas and Golaud's mother, and Robert Lloyd is heartbreaking as the blind old king Arkel

Werther by Jules Massenet( )

53 editions published between 1980 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 878 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Werther is one of the iconic figures in literature, an innocent young man who feels nature deeply and loves unreservedly. In Massenet's alluring operatic version, Alfredo Kraus magnificently captures every nuance of this complex character--his aristocratic bearing and pure soul, his anguish that the only woman he can love is promised to another man, and finally the despair that leads to his suicide. Frederica von Stade sings Charlotte, the woman who returns Werther's feelings but honors her promise to someone else. Dawn Upshaw is a sparkling Sophie, Charlotte's younger sister

Mignon by Ambroise Thomas( Recording )

25 editions published between 1970 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 604 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
