Just been listening to two seldom heard operas by Camille Saint-Saëns: Hélène and Nuit Persane (though Nuit isn't strictly speaking an opera, but who cares). Wonderful stuff, can't understand why they're not performed.

the recording I have is an Australian one from Orchestra Victoria (based in Melbourne) with the remarkable Rosamund Illing and the dashingly good looking Steve Davislim. Melba records (they ship internationally).

I have a video of Saint-Saëns opera, Henry VIII. It is a wonderful production.
