The masterpiece of composer Francesco Cilea, ''Adriana Lecouvreur'' premiered in 1902 with Caruso in the tenor lead. It has remained a standard in Italy, though it is less famous abroad. This is one of its best recordings ever, with the great singing actress Magda Olivero literally living the title role, and a fabulous supporting cast headed by Franco Corelli. Live performance, Naples, November 28, 1959..
Wiener Staatsoper Live - Mozart: Don Giovanni / London, della Casa, et al

Mozart called Don Giovanni a dramma giocoso, which might be translated as ''serious comedy.'' Karl Böhm emphasizes its seriousness--understandably, since Don G. is dragged down to Hell, alive and screaming, in the last scene. George London, too, underplays comedy; his Byronic Don is essentially a 19th-century interpretation. Mozart treated the Don's horrible punishment as a happy ending; despite diabolical charm, he was a menace to society. An interpretation with a lighter touch, and one sung

Well, he's done it again...put on another extraordinary performance conducting his energetic orchestra in Dublin's famous concert hall. Don't expect to see a boring and stuffy symphony performance here. Andre gets the crowd out of their seats with his greatest waltzes and lovely melodies. Originally a smash PBS program, it's a magical experience for the whole family! (1 hour 15 minutes).

Handel: Giulio Cesare

This new recording of Handel's great Giulio Cesare was taped live in Vienna and has the exciting aura of a live performance--and also some of the problems. Minkowski leads an exciting reading, and he has a Caeser who can keep up with his aggressive tempi: mezzo Marijana Mijanovic sings fluently, accurately, and with stunning tone and great involvement, and the fact that she sounds as if she might be a countertenor only helps the situation. Magdalena Kozena's Cleopatra is wonderful as

Still in the plastic. Dead Man Walking opens with a brutal rape-murder scene and ends with a passage, silent except for the clicks of the machine delivering fluids that execute a condemned man, followed by Susan Graham intoning the spiritual ''He will gather us around.'' Those searing scenes flank that rarity, a contemporary opera that deals with an important issue--the death penalty--with balance and empathy while sustaining dramatic tension, the narrative conveyed with musical alertness.

Karita Live in Helsinki

Karita Mattila - Karita Live - Cd Any doubts that Finnish singer Karita Mattila--fresh from her triumph in the Met's new production of Fidelio in the 2000-2001 season--has moved from the top ranks of today's sopranos into the rarefied aura of full-fledged diva status are dispelled by this remarkable disc capturing her in full flight at a concert in Helsinki. She opens with an ecstatic ''Dich teure Halle'' from Tannhäuser, follows with a sinuous Dvorák ''Song to the Moon'' from Rusalka,
