Purcell inspired other composers centuries after his death. First of all it's Britten. Lately Michael Nyman produced variety of music based on Purcell's, "The draughtman's contract" and others.

The most of music for movies parasitize on Wagner's and Puccini's operas. Wagner's pieces are used more frequently, Liebestod, the ride of the Valkyries and wedding march with big breakaway. The rest is strongly influenced by both Wagner and Puccini'.
"Adriana" is also like music for a film, where characters try to sing.
