I would try to contact Lincoln Center, both the Met and the State Theater. They both have large companies, the Met probably the largest and best in the US. The State Theater uses second string names, and does do the usual top operas, but unlike the Met they have a tendency to add new and unheard of operas. I’m sure there is someone at the Met, or the Library attached to it who will be able to help you. I don’t know if google will be able to help, but you could always try and phrase the question to try and get the correct answer.Sorry, but I just read the other answers and am quite confused by the lists provided, the first list has operas rarely ever seen; ie, Britten; I agree with the second list, except I would think that La Boheme would be the most popular opera, but that could just be a personal favorite, so maybe as I call it Madame Mothball is more popular than I think.
