Perhaps I did not make my question concise enough.
I did say in my first sentence that there are many fine Spanish works and 
composers (certainly beautiful zarzuelas, and for sure "La Vida Brave") but 
I am simply curious as to why there is no really famous Spanish opera to 
equal works like (examples:) Puccini/Verdi in the Italian vein, 
Wagner/Strauss in the German vein, Gounod/Poulenc in the French vein 
and even top Russian operas, but nothing really regularly performed in 
large venues in the Spanish vein.
