    Yes, this is all I can contribute with in this thread. But if anyone's up for quoting Zauberflöte, I'm game.

    West Side Story was a blunder. It's not an opera.
    As for Sweeney Todd, nobody nominated it while the nominations were open.

    From Wikipedia:
    In 1984, Bernstein decided to re-record the musical, conducting his own music for the first time. Generally known as the "operatic version" of West Side Story, it stars Kiri Te Kanawa as Maria, José Carreras as Tony, Tatiana Troyanos as Anita, Kurt Ollmann as Riff, and Marilyn Horne as the offstage voice who sings "Somewhere". It won a Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album in 1985 and the recording process was filmed as a documentary. It was made by the BBC for Unitel, Produced by Humphrey Burton and Directed by Christopher Swann. The documentary won the Flaherty BAFTA for documentary direction, a Prix Italia and was nominated for a Prime Time Emmy.

    I'm not sure I'm doing this right... but I think I'm supposed to list 5 titles:

    -Puccini...Manon Lescaut
    -Strauss (Richard)...Die Frau ohne Schatten
    Poulenc...Dialogues des Carmelites
    Delibes...Lakmé
    Monteverdi...Il Ritorno d'Ulisse in Patria

    I'm not sure if recording a musical once with operatic technique makes of the work an opera. Although, there is a point in arguing that it does for this specific work, since it was done under the direction of the composer himself.

    Results

    As was the case previously in the top 100 game number of votes for an opera are the most important, ranking points (five for a number one, four for a number two, etc.) function as tiebreakers.

    -Puccini...Manon Lescaut 9/19
    -Monteverdi...Il Ritorno d'Ulisse in Patria 9/18
    -Strauss (Richard)...Die Frau ohne Schatten 7/25
    -Handel...Hercules 7/18
    -Poulenc...Dialogues des Carmelites 6/17
    -Delibes...Lakmé 6/10
    -Britten...Turn of the Screw 4/14


    Ranking 101-107

    101 Puccini...Manon Lescaut
    102 Monteverdi...Il Ritorno d'Ulisse in Patria
    103 Strauss (Richard)...Die Frau ohne Schatten
    104 Handel...Hercules
    105 Poulenc...Dialogues des Carmelites
    106 Delibes...Lakmé
    107 Britten...Turn of the Screw

    Please nominate 10 of these operas for our next round of voting. You don't have to put them in your order of preferrence. Random order is ok as well. Two days from now we'll move on to the next phase. Please mention BOTH the names of the composers as well as the titles of the operas because it makes my job a lot easier.
