If I had Gockley's job (more fantasy seasons)

Lisa Hirsch created a fantasy season of operas after seeing the conservative programming found in season announcements all over the country. Her three posts prompted others to make their own wishlists/ fantasy seasons. This is all fun to ponder and I want in on this action, so I approached it from the local perspective, as if I were programming San Francisco Opera for the following four seasons after 2012. My rules, starting from what I suggested in an earlier post:  half the season has to be standard rep (or by a composer associated with it); the other half is more challenging or unusual- I call this the "Janus Approach"; there can't be more operas sung in German than there are in Italian in any one season; nothing can be put onstage that has appeared in the last ten years; 12 operas per season, a number I ended up because my original list was comprised of 24 operas I doubt we'll see onstage in the next twenty four years the way things are going. The standard rep requirement knocks out earlier music, which is of less interest to me.
