    • found: Wikipedia, Aug. 18, 2017(Category: One-act operas. This category contains operas which are specified in their libretto as having only one act. However, the number of acts is not necessarily an indication of the length of the opera. While most one-act operas have a relatively short running time (under 90 minutes), this is not always the case. For example, the one-act opera Das Rheingold has an approximate running time of 2 hours, 35 minutes)
