A one off question

What initially would an intelligent cyclist's thought be on studying the following list of operas by Verdi

Tosca
Aida
Nabucco
Don Carlos
Ernani
Macbeth

As I say answers by PM we'll give you 24 hours to think about it, and see if any of you get it right.

I am surprised with your classical bent you missed it, the intelligent cyclist would have spotted that Tosca was a Puccini opera not one by Verdi.

Haha, it was the question itself that threw me. I've played Tosca complete several productions, it's a long opera, much more than a football match!!
