What operas do you need to see a better version of?

We've all been there. You go to see an opera, and it's just not up to your standards. You love the opera, but the execution is sub-par. What are some operas you have seen that you wish you could see with a proper cast? Mine are Il Trovatore and Manon Lescaut. Love them on disc and DVD, but the performances I saw were just so-so. Passable or mediocre. And an opera like Il Trovatore is electrifying and thunderous with the right cast.
Tenor freak. :D
