Thanks to FrankHamilton’s invaluable database, I think we can stop discussing whether or not Nelson Eddy qualifies as an opera singer.  He had quite a wide repertory ( and range--Mr Kane. mentioned the Gurnemanz, the final item here, and he also sang Berg's tenor Drum Major)--and lots of staged engagements.
