Act IV. Desdemona's room. She is getting ready to go to bed, aided by Emilia. She is hurt by Otello's attitude toward her, for which she finds no explanation. She has just finished her prayers when Otello enters. He openly accuses her of having been unfaithful to him, even though, unheeded, Desdemona proclaims her innocence. He has already condemned her and proceeds to strangle her. Emilia returns announcing that Roderigo has been killed while trying to assassinate Cassio. Seeing Desdemona dead, she accuses Otello and cries that he has killed an innocent woman. Iago appears, and Emilia reproaches him for his intrigue; his only answer is to flee. Otello, dismayed and suddenly aware of the trap into which he has fallen gives a last kiss to his beloved wife and stabs himself
Il trovatore by Giuseppe Verdi( Sound Recording )
70 editions published between 1970 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 1,222 libraries worldwide
Verdi's beloved opera overflows with marvelous arias, ensembles, and choruses--all superbly sung by this all-star cast, under the direction of James Levine. Aprile Millo (Leonore) is in love with the mysterious troubadour Manrico (Luciano Pavarotti) but the nefarious Count Di Luna (Sherrill Milnes) wants her for himself. Add to the roiling drama the mysterious old gypsy Azucena (the intense Fiorenza Cossotto in her final Met performance), and it's a situation that is disastrous for the characters--though it inspired some of the best-known music in all of Italian opera

The text also includes the background of the composer, biographies of the principal singers and conductor
Macbeth by Giuseppe Verdi( file )
73 editions published between 1970 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 1,137 libraries worldwide
Verdi's crackling version of Shakespeare's monumental play attracts singers and conductors who are willing to take risks in pursuit of drama. With James Levine's taut conducting, the dimensions and colors of Verdi's score are revealed, galvanizing Sherrill Milnes (Macbeth) and Renata Scotto (Lady Macbeth). Milnes's strong baritone gives imposing dimensions to Macbeth, and the way Scotto combines the words with the music demonstrates why some people say Lady Macbeth is really the leading character
Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti( Sound Recording )
73 editions published between 1972 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 1,135 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

La forza del destino by Giuseppe Verdi( Sound Recording )
38 editions published between 1977 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 1,018 libraries worldwide
Verdi painted an immense canvas with this dark but tuneful opera. The legendary Leontyne Price is seen in one of her greatest roles, Leonora. Price's soaring voice encompasses every nuance of Leonora's emotion as she moves from joy through resignation to ultimate heartbreak. James Levine's brilliant leading of the Met orchestra and chorus is a lesson in Verdi style. Giuseppe Giacomini is Alvaro, the man Leonora loves, and Leo Nucci is Don Carlo, the dark instrument of their Fate
Carmina burana by Carl Orff( file )
40 editions published between 1970 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 995 libraries worldwide
Carmina Burana is a scenic cantata composed by Carl Orff in 1935 and 1936. It is based on 24 of the poems found in the medieval collection Carmina Burana
I vespri siciliani by Giuseppe Verdi( file )
58 editions published between 1973 and 2009 in 8 languages and held by 976 libraries worldwide
This astonishing cast introduced Vespri to Met audiences only a few weeks before this broadcast and opera lovers fought for tickets to hear in person what all the excitement was about. James Levine's conducting was as passionate as it was authoritative, and the singers responded with performances that are still talked about with awe. Montserrat Caballé is lustrous as Elena, the young woman whose marriage to Arrigo (Nicolai Gedda) ignites a bloodbath. Sherrill Milnes is in top form as Monforte, the hated oppressor, who turns out to be much more than he seems

Andrea Chenier by Umberto Giordano( file )
68 editions published between 1977 and 2009 in 6 languages and held by 929 libraries worldwide
Giordano's gripping drama of love and politics at the time of the French Revolution demands larger-than-life performances, and the stellar lineup of artists in this broadcast delivers: Baritone Sherrill Milnes (celebrating his 25th Met anniversary with this appearance) is sensational as the servant-turned-revolutionary Gérard. Tenor Nicola Martinucci gives a powerful account of the title role, the poet Andrea Chénier. The two men are rivals for the love of Maddalena, sung with passion and charisma by Aprile Millo. Julius Rudel conducts

Larissa Diadkova is Herodias, Salome's mother, and Siegfried Jerusalem sings her husband, King Herod, whose desire for his stepdaughter sets the tragedy in motion. Matthew Polenzani is Narraboth, the captain of the guard, and Valery Gergiev conducts the colorful score that includes the famous Dance of the Seven Veils
