Our friends over Vancouver Opera reported the Listverse, the #1 list maker of top 10 lists in the known universe, has deemed Opera the #1 Greatest Achievement of the Human Mind beating out such discoveries/achievements as the work of William Shakespeare, Infinitesimal Calculus, Quantum Mechanics, Relativity Theory and Lady Gaga (OK, we made that last one up but we here at Aria Serious just can't seem to understand her).

But not just any opera made the list, no, Wagner's gesamtkunstwerk, his Ring Cycle, took the crown. What do you think about that?
