    1) Verdi: Don Carlos
    2) Verdi: Aida
    3) Mozart: Cosi Fan Tutte
    4) Wagner: Der Ring Des Nibelungen
    5) Donizetti: Lucia Di Lammermoor
    6) Verdi: La Traviata
    7) Rossini: William Tell
    7) Puccini: Suor Angelica
    8) Puccini: La Boheme
    9) Verdi: Rigoletto
    10) Mascagni: Cavalleria Rusticana
    11) Gluck: Orpheo et Eurydice
    12) Berlioz: Les Troyens
    13) Bizet: Carmen

    The top ten are fairly sure, the last three I could have easily considered: Massenet's Werther, or Donizetti's La Fille Du Regiment, or L'elisir or Tchaikovsky's Eugene Onegin

    My 13 changed a bit recently so


    1. Don Giovanni
    2. Billy Budd
    3. Don Carlo
    4. The Ring
    5. Il trovatore
    6. La forza del destino
    7. Un ballo in maschera
    8. Eugene Onegin
    9. Tosca
    10. Lucia di Lammermoor
    11. Die Zauberflöte
    12. Turandot
    13. Peter Grimes


    Don Carlo knocked the Ring out of the top 3 and Onegin skyrocketed into my top 10 thanks to that magical Met production.

    Looking thru my earlier entry, my list has changed only a little - mostly to allow for my increased awe of Rossini:

    (In no particular order and as of today...)

    Der Ring des Nibelungen
    Lohengrin
    Tristan und Isolde
    Le Nozze di Figaro
    Norma
    Die Tote Stadt
    Semiramide
    La Donna del Lago
    Der Rosenkavalier
    I Puritani
    Don Carlos
    Macbeth
    Die Entführung aus dem Serail

    I would note, for the record, that I continue to work on improving my appreciation of contemporary opera, but nothing yet has broken thru into the top thirteen.
