    After 5 years, we are organising in TC the next poll of Operas and Opera recordings. We are currently re-doing with a poll the Top 100+ Operas of all time, and any member with a consistent top can vote throughout the next months.

    This is a call for all the opera fans (I'm targeting both Baroque and Contemporary since the Late Romantic fans have voted massively) to vote in this poll, even come up with a rank of operas since the 100 most voted and recommended will lead to a Recordings poll that will be published next year and will remain sticky until a new poll is made, probably by 2025.

    Positions 1-10 will be settled this friday while the weekend will discuss their final position, and then continue to the next 10 (11-20).

    Visit The 2020 TC Top 100+ Most Recommended Operas List to read the rules and vote
    Visit Discussion: The 2020 Talk Classical Top Recommended Opera CDs and DVDs to discuss the voting issues about both operas and recordings
