Too bad many of the pictures can't be seen anymore. Isn't it time to make another Top 100 of operas and vote for our favourites, after all. It's been 4 years and half already.

Besides, I've been exploring and there's a lot beyond the Maria Callas discography for Italian Opera, and haven't there been a lot of Video releases in the last 4 years?

I think this is a great idea. Anybody up for curating this? Would we just run the same 100 operas or would we choose a new 100?

Pugg talked about this a long time ago. I would gladly do the design for the results post, but I know nothing about the dynamics to choose first the 100 operas. Could a post in the Game section count as valid for the current members? Could mods send an extraordinary email to the members announcing the contest for the 2020 Talk Classical 100 best Operas and recordings on DVD and CD?

I would discuss that instead of a rank, we should choose the hundred best operas and place them in order of premiere from oldest to newest masterpiece. There are many I haven't listened to from the Top100 but I would like to vote for some operas I've listened to that aren't there. You know I'm really biased towards 1850-1930, and others aren't.

I repeat, I'm really interested about the results on DVD since most of the new releases in the past 5 years are on video tape and great picture quality (although the Chereau Ring ages like wine).
