Default Any Opera music fans here?

I've listened to a bit of Opera over the course of my life, but I was wondering if anyone had any good recommendations?

I thought I hated Opera until a week ago. Then I downloaded Claudio Monteverdi's L'Orfeo. It's excellent. Not too overblown and melodramatic, but definately emotional and beautiful.

La Boheme is pretty good, Remember Paul Smecker's Entrance in "The Boondock Saints" (99) ?

I recommend any of the following:

Marriage of Figaro - Mozart
L'Elisir D'Amore - Donizetti
The Ring cyle - Wagner

All of the above got me interested in opera.
