Opera recommendations?

"I'm surprised by your question, since it ostensibly comes from a man who is driven to work in a "car"."No mystery here: like a lot of my 'investments' I have a 'synthetic' 'car' and 'driver.I'm driven in a train mostly, and a taxi sometimes. My 'driver' is a guy who owns a cab, we hold the note on his car, he pays it off in cab service home or to work for us on odd nights when my wife and I are late at the office or I am teaching. Each ride's fare=payment on note. As a Cambodian refugee, his credit with banks was none too good. We knew better. Gotta find alpha where ya can, and marginal utility income on options: i.e. service. Good for us, good for him, the banks were snoozin'.Now that the mortgage is paid off, how many more cabs can I finance and does it equal round the clock service with a high p-score? Do I need round the clock service? hmmm. If I get a job working for Nonius, I can have x more synthetic drivers! yeah!Back to figuring out, low rent, less impressive alpha, with the same utility function but at lower cost that is mutually beneficial.

@exotiq is a great opera singer as well. Opera sounds best at La Scala.

Approach your problem from the right end and begin with the answers. Then one day, perhaps you will find the final question..
