O is for Opera

Remember that scene from Pretty Woman when Richard Gere takes Julia Roberts to the opera La Traviata for the first time.  She is deeply moved, cries profusely, and applauds at the end.  When the older lady asks her if she liked the performance, her response is "I liked it so much, I almost peed in my pants!"  To which Richard Gere says to the older lady, "She said it was better than Pirates of Penzance."

I've added "attend the opera" to my bucket list.  I'm not sure what opera I would want to see, but these seems like something everyone should do at least once in their life times.

Any suggestions of what should be my first opera to attend?
