Three groups of operas are identified: the “classics” also called “warhorses”, “evergreens” or “blockbusters” are the 10 per cent most often staged, which account for 50 per cent of performances; the “rarities” or the 60 per cent least frequently performed; and between the two, the “possible”, which represent 30 per cent of operas and 30 per cent of performances. 2. The distribution of the programmed operas between the three groups – the classics, the possibles and the rarities, representing 50 per cent, 30 per cent and 20 per cent of performances, respectively – is similar to the results observed for the Opéra National de Paris over the period 1996–2009.
