These operas are listed in the order of their premier dates and now include musicals. I include operas in which I participated.  The current count is 385.  I put this in because one of the other bloggers has a similar list, and I was feeling competitive.  Now it serves as a kind of index to this blog.  I have blogged about 657 different opera performances.

I have added the ranking for the top 100 most frequently performed operas.  The last opera to make the most performed list was written in 1959. Over the years I have seen 155 different operas at the San Francisco Opera.  If I am required to count only operas seen live, that is 263.  I think this is an irrelevant distinction, since it omits HD operas, live streams, DVDs, operas on television, etc.  22 operas by Verdi.  11 operas by Strauss.  18 operas by Rossini.  12 operas and/or oratorios by Handel.  I count only oratorios staged as though they were operas.  10 operas by Puccini.  11 operas by Wagner.  12 operas by Donizetti.  8 operas by Britten.  7 by Glass.  7 by Massenet.  7 by Menotti.  9 by Mozart.
