To be perfectly honest, I'm only interested half of these. I'll probably see the first three operas and naturally Orfeo ed Euridice. For Salome, it is only to hear Mattila, as I detest this particular opera. (Yes, I know, I'm a philistine.) Likewise, I am not interested in Le Damnation de Faust, but Susan Graham and John Relyea are hard to resist. I am compelled to see Doctor Atomic again, due to the absurdity factor. Does one need to hear Eric Owens sing about chocolate cake yet again? The answer is clear.
