I saw Don Giovannni in Prague last summer. An unusual but interesting production (with a young boy dressed all in white as Giovanni's soul leading him to hell at the end).

The others perhaps yes, but as much as I love Bruckner, I would not rank him above "the father of the symphony and the string quartet." Saint-Saens is okay.
The weak never apologize, because they perceive it as a sign of weakness. The strong easily apologize because it is a sign of their strength.
