I too often find myself thinking about favorite scenes and moments.  Like many of us, i am 
sure mine are too numerous to mention them all.  off the top of my head, here are a few 
moments that always bring cathartic tears, Monsieur Triquet's little scene and his lovely 
couplets in Onegin, the Flemish Deputies in the Auto da Fe scene of Don Carlo ( just heard this 
last Thursday night in Zürich - the six young singers were the picture of youthful innocence 
and zeal and sang mellifluously.)  I adore Lauretta and Rinuccio's little duet about Fierenze at 
the end of Gianni Schicchi, the sailors shouting out the arrival of King Marke at the end of the 
first act of Tristan and Isolde, the fact that all of the friends are together at Mimi's death and 
that she mentions each by name in her final moments.  Hundreds more.
