Lightbulb Forgotten operas

Well quite a list here of some unknown works that it would be interesting to find out more about.

Thanks. Always nice to explore operas and that article gives brief synopses so we can quickly screen them for our interest.

Here is a forgotten opera that I recently got into and the DVD performance by Batroli (with Jonas Kaufmann) is wonderful:

Nina by Giovanni Paisiello

Not sure if Herold's Zampa might fit. It may not be worth remembering, but the overture shows up from time to time on the radio. Years ago I received a piano arrangement of the overture and have enjoyed that for many years.

Not sure this one qualifies as forgotten, but perhaps obscure:

Prokofiev, Betrothal in a Monastery

I am watching a DVD of this and it plays out much like a Rossini opera, even happens in Seville.
