I've never been to the Opera before, but as a New Yorker, it's of course been on my bucket list. Can any experts recommend where to start?

Do you have any exposure to composers or performers? (That can be a good starting place.) If you're not ready to get a ticket just yet, you can log onto the Metropolitan Opera's website and 'rent' a film of a production (you might want to do this anyway to develop some sort of sense of what you might enjoy).

I'm not an expert by any means, but I would start with the ABC of opera: Aida, La Boheme, and Carmen. You can't go wrong with those three. And if you like them, you can continue down the alphabet.
