Opera moments of 2014

Here is our list of our personal opera moments of 2014. It is a very partial list, selecting the operas and performances which have continued to resonate. 

2014 seems to have been a vintage year for rarities, and for Handel. We managed to take in rarely performed operas by Berlioz, Rossini (three in all) and Weber, and a total of four Handel operas (including one we'd never seen before). Of course, there were horrors too but this is a celebratory list of what was best in the opera we reviewed in 2014.
