I cannot speak for Bocelli (who, by the way, has a really beautiful and 
sweet voice), but Mario Lanza was in both Falstaff and Madama Butterfly. 
Those ARE considered real operas aren't they?

"As an adult, Lanza performed two operatic roles twice: first, as Fenton, in 
the Metropolitan Opera director Herbert Grafís production of Nicolaiís comic 
opera The Merry Wives of Windsor at the Berkshire Musical Festival in 
Tanglewood on August 7 and 13, 1942; and second, as Pinkerton, in 
Armando Agniniís production of Pucciniís Madama Butterfly for the New 
Orleans Opera Association on April 8 and 10, 1948. The conductors for 
these two productions were Boris Goldovsky and Walter Herbert, 
respectively."
