Updates: The Met Opera site has synopses of the operas that are helpful if you're not familiar with what you're watching. The operas can be found here in alphabetical order.

One of my favorite sites, among many that has libretti of popular operas, is at Dmitry Murashev's opera site. Find a site with a translation that works for you.
