    and are even slightly curious, try this:

    Wagner's Tannhauser, Live from the Met.
    Saturday 18 December 2004 18:30-22:45 (Radio 3)

    To my mind the most accessible of the lot. The plot is not too silly, the whole thing is not too long (relatively) and there are some glorious tunes for full chorus before the first hour is up ! Even if it's just the first or last act it's worth sampling.
