    The closing duet in the Coronation of Poppaea: probably not by Monteverdi, but who cares??

    Otello love duet. A beautifully intimate moment of the great warrior with his wife but at the same time it has that ominous feel to it, anticipating the final tragedy.
    No, pagliaccio non son!

    I'd never consciously noted that before, thanks for your insightful comment.

    So hard to pick favorite duets, there are SO many of them… Still. Here are the ones that haven't been mentioned in this thread as for now.

    Of the non-romantic ones:

    Kupava and Berendey's duet in The Snow Maiden.


    The Tumbler and the Old Grandpa's duet in The Tale of Tsar Saltan. I'm afraid I don't know any good recording.

    The romantic ones:

    Susanna and Figaro's duets. Both the one in the beginning and the one in the end. I can listen to these for ages.

    The duet of Vaudemont and Iolanta about light.

    (That one is not usually counted as romantic, but the production that I watched includes quite a bit of chemistry between the characters, so here it is) Narbal and Anna's duet in Les Troyens.
