Have a look on the classic fm site - their compilation CDs generally contain a more popular opera and orchestral music....

Have a look at the Anthems one.

I think you can also download - if you don't want to buy a CD

Why? Damn! I asked even though I was told not to...:-D

Try Spotify, or any on-line classical radio station (as gari89 says, ClassicFM is a good site to start with).

One of my favourites is The Marriage of Figaro by Mozart. Cosi Fan Tutte is another good one. Have a look at Mozart's Italian operas, I would say you can't go far wrong there.

More modern ones might be something by Verdi (maybe Aida, Nabucco), or Rossini (The Barber of Seville, William Tell).

Oh, a really good one is Mascagni's Cavalleria Rusticana. It is not very long and also not very expensive to buy.
I also like Monteverdi's L'Incoronazione di Poppea, although that is quite abit earlier (1640s), and has quite a different sound to it.

For a non-Italian one, you could try The Magic Flute (Mozart again) as a starting point.

I'm thinking that you probably want an album of popular arias rather than a full opera.
Check out any of the three tenors - Pavarotti or Carreras or Domingo, separately or together. Katherine Jenkins does a nice aria. Andrea Bocelli's good.
