There was also a somewhat unusual mimed version of Götterdämmerung with different music, but that can go in the theatre list.

(Edit: Also, although not an opera, Birmingham Opera Company were involved in the performance of Mussorgsky’s “Songs And Dances Of Death” that appears in the miscellaneous list).
