I loved this Fidelio.
If your friends like reality television, you could give them Anna Nicole.
There's some pretty wonderful stuff in this recording of Vivaldi's Ercole sul Termodonte (1722) with Fabio Biondi and Europa Galante. Even people who hate staged Baroque operas will probably like this.
My personal favorite would, of course, be this video of Werther. I warn you, I haven't been able to get any of my friends to watch it.
