Wagner's "Ring" series is technically a cycle of four operas, but it's one continous plot and opera companies generally will include all four, in order, in a season's performances (that is, they present the full story). In that sense, it could be considered a 17-18 hour opera in four chunks of 3-5 hours each.
I don't really dislike pop, but it doesn't seem as rich as classical

Right now I've been hooked on collecting low-wattage (5w or less) amps, since they can be picked up for 2-300 and are tons of fun to play.
