Simon Boccanegra by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

12 editions published between 1984 and 2010 in Italian and French and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The role of Simon Boccanegra is one of the capstones of Verdi's baritone repertoire. Sherrill Milnes gives a stunning portrayal of the 14th century Genoa doge, singing with both power and poetry, and reminding everyone why audiences acclaimed him the great American Verdi baritone of the day. Anna Tomowa-Sintow is Amelia, his long-lost daughter, in love with one of Boccanegra's most bitter political enemies. James Levine reveals his passion for Verdi's score, bringing out all the drama while reveling in its aching lyricism

Anna Bolena by Gaetano Donizetti( Recording )

29 editions published between 1958 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With her gripping portrayal of Anne Boleyn, soprano Sondra Radvanovsky launched her season-long quest to sing all three of Donizetti's Tudor queen operas. She conquers the extraordinary musical and dramatic demands the composer makes, starring opposite an equally impressive Ildar Abdrazakov as Henry VIII, Anne's king and husband, whose need for a son leaves him prey to lies spread about Anne by her enemies—with tragic consequences. Stephen Costello is Lord Richard Percy, Anne's former lover, Milijana Nikolic sings Jane Seymour, Anne's lady-in-waiting who has caught the king's eye. Tamara Mumford is Mark Smeaton, the queen's page who is also in love with her. Marco Armiliato conducts

Acuzena is the daughter of a gypsy who, fifteen years before, was burned as a witch for cursing the young son of a nobleman. In revenge, Acuzena abducted the son to throw into the embers of the same fire, but, in her distress, threw in her own son. She has brought up the other child as her own. Leonora is a lady-in-waiting at court who is loved by two men, the Count di Luna, who is the older son of the nobleman who had Acuzena's mother burned, and Manrico, the troubadour, and leader of the rebel forces engaged in civil war against the count. Tragedy results when the four come together

Maria Stuarda by Gaetano Donizetti( Recording )

15 editions published between 1988 and 2006 in Italian and French and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The clash between two queens, with the throne of England at stake, is at the center of Donizetti's bel canto drama. Sondra Radvanovsky, in the second part of her historic traversal of all three of the composer's Tudor queen operas in one season, stars in the title role of the Catholic Mary, Queen of Scots. Her opponent is Queen Elizabeth I, sung by Elza van den Heever, as the Protestant ruler who knows her position is not secure as long as Mary lives. Tenor Celso Albelo is George Talbot, the Earl of Leicester and favorite of the queen, who urges her to reconcile with Mary. But when Mary insults Elizabeth, her tragic fate is sealed. Kwangchul Youn as Talbot and Patrick Carfizzi as Cecil complete the principal cast, and Riccardo Frizza conducts

Don Giovanni by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( Recording )

4 editions published between 1990 and 2007 in Italian and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I vespri siciliani by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

7 editions published between 1964 and 1990 in 3 languages and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Verdi's gripping tale of Sicilians rising against the occupying French stars Renata Scotto in her only broadcast of this rarely heard masterpiece. From the beginning of the opera, when Elena (Scotto) sings an "innocent" song fanning the people's resentment against the foreign army, to the end, when the ringing of her wedding bells signals the start of the revolt, Scotto's artistry blazes. James Levine leads the Met Orchestra and Chorus in a wonderfully idiomatic performance, and Ruggero Raimondi is magnificent as Procida, the outlawed Sicilian leader
Werther by Jules Massenet( Recording )

11 editions published between 1980 and 2009 in Italian and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
