I… don’t actually like opera, with the following exceptions. So my answers are (a) not representative, and (b) damn good, if they got past my “I don’t like opera” filter.

  • John Adams, Nixon in China.
  • Alban Berg, Wozzeck.
  • Wolfgang Mozart, Don Giovanni.
  • Richard Strauss, Der Rosenkavalier.

Need a fifth, OK:

  • Benjamin Britten, Peter Grimes.

Thirty years ago, but I remember liking it at the time.

EDIT: Strike that. I meant to say

  • Philip Glass, Akhnaten.
