    Carmen is a great opera.

    I like Stravinky's Opedipus Rex (with libretto by Cocteau) a great deal. It's incredibly powerful stuff. The version I saw which was staged by Julie Taymore was AWESOME! Her work is so inspired!

    boheme of course.. if u can't love boheme then there isn't the slightest ounce of compassion/romance within you.

    anything by puccini is always good. verdi of course. no wagner though!
