    As was once said of Vivaldi concerti:  "Just one.  Then aliens landed and gave him the use of a Xerox machine, revocable at his death."

    Kidding - everyone has a spot in the lexicon of composition.  But not everyone has written things that, past the first 3-5, can be named by even professional musicians.  We look them up on IMSLP . . .

    "about 75" says https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gaetano_Donizetti#Do...

    (The snarky answer would be "too many".)

    (There is a complete list of titles at

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_operas_by_Ga...

    but I haven't counted them.)

    (Since he wrote his first opera at age 19 and he died before his 51st birthday, he was really churning them out.)

      As above - few of us can recall more than a couple.
