Subject:        Shakespearean Opera
 
In a recent discussion with a friend, I was told that there were in excess of
sixty operas written which were based upon *The Tempest*.  While I do not
doubt the accuracy of my friend's quote, it has generated some interest on my
part regarding Shakepeare as source material for opera.  Does anyone know
of any resources which compile operas based upon Shakesperean texts?
 
Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
