No - as a clue the irony is that the opera and the film have very similar plots...

No - although worthy guesses since all 3 of those operas are in the Top 10 most performed. As a further clue the film terrified a generation of married men and resulted in an alliterative expression for a female stalker becoming commonplace and the opera is 20th Century (just).
