Not really opera, but classical chorus OK?

Schubert's 'Stšndchen' (D920)
Dawn Padula & the Sons of Orpheus



I never tire of hearing this. Schubert wrote the music at the request of a student in preparation for a birthday.
The idea was to wake the lucky woman with a choral serenade outside her window.

Here is another nice performance of the piece:

Schubert's 'Stšndchen' (D920)
I'm not sure who the soloist is, since the video just says this is the Capella d'Amsterdam under the direction of Daniel Reuss





I also just listened to the melancholy but sweet D957, which I think is more famous than D920 since I had heard it before. I prefer D920 because it tugs at me more, but Angela Gheorghiu sings D957 very well, in my opinion:

Schubert's "Stšndchen" D 957, nį4
Angela Gheorghiu




The youtube video caught my attention because Angela Gheorghiu is so glamorous!

Mozart's 'Queen of the Night' aria - Lucia Popp




Fragments of this aria from the Magic Flute were in the movie
'Amadeus'. Lucia Popp's performance is the best I could find
on YouTube. Her power and clarity are just phenomenal.

They were loud too, while still sounding good.

This guy can sing good too:

Verdi's 'La donna Ť mobile' (Rigoletto)
Juan Diego Flůrez, tenor (Vienna 2006)

Hey, I've heard that ditty before!

He does sing good. I wish I sang like that.

In all honesty, though, I sometimes find it hard to appreciate famous music that has been played so much that I know almost everyone knows it. I feel as if I shouldn't like a piece now considered by many to be "trite" due to being so well-known, even among "common people."

I'm afraid this shows I'm sometimes a musical snob, unable to fully appreciate music if I think everyone else likes it, too. Other people's views of music shouldn't affect the value I see in it.
