I would also add I Lombardi on my list, have it as part of a trio of Verdi operas with choosing 
between Battaglia di Legnano, Ernani, Vespri siciliani, Simon Boccanegra, but not a Ken Burns, 
I mean Stefan Herheim production of Vespri.  Dargomizhky's Rusalka and Rimsky-Korsakov's 
Maid of Pskov, maybe one per season, might fit well also, but there are also Invisible City of 
Kitezh, May Night, and Prokofiev's Gambler, not to mention Glinka's Russlan and Ludmila to 
consider as well.  Debussy's Pelleas and Zimmermann's Die Soldaten, anybody's pick of 
Rossini's Neapolitan opera seria should be there as well.  I also love Wagner's Lohengrin and 
Berlioz's Troyens, in comparison with which Verdi's Aida has little to nothing to offer.
