This will be a weird response but, best opening scene: the plane landing in Nixon in China. The chorus, the anticipation of whatever bombastic and showy stage manner in which the plane will "land," and Nixon's first aria. It's such a "meta-opening," so full of itself, and in that way, so very operatic.

Callas = opera's Jesus. You're never going to get certain Jesus freaks to think critically about their religion so it's best for non-Jesusy people to not even try.

Like when you visit the Bible Belt, when all they do is talk about Jesus at the dinner table, you just smile and nod politely... and when they hijack every conversation referring it back to Jesus, it's up to you to decide whether or not to continue to attempt conversation with them (or start conversation threads on a forum, etc)
