    OMG - and I just realized that I forgot to include Wiener Blut as well! I guess that later on I'll have to post a part two of this poll!

    Salome, Der Rosenkavalier, and Aradine auf Naxos for me.
    I adore art...when I am alone with my notes, my heart pounds and the tears stream from my eyes, and my emotion and my joys are too much to bear.

    Der Rosenkavalier is one of my most favourite operas by any composer. Salome and Ariadne auf Naxos are the other two that got my vote although I love Elektra and Die Frau Ohne Schatten just as much. The others also have some fabulous music but are a bit uneven in quality.

    I voted for Rosenkavalier (def. first-- also one of my very fave operas by anyone), Arabella & Capriccio-- though Frau Ohne Schatten I like almost as much as the other two, & perhaps more to watch than those two-- but gave listening the edge. Daphne and Ariana auf Naxos would be next-- then Elektra/Salome (I'm not as crazy over his early more 'Wagnerian' ones if some great moments certainly).
