what's opera

I'm behind on teevee watching, so I only just now saw the following exchange from last week's 30 Rock:

Liz Lemon's cell phone rings ... the tone is a famous bit of opera.

Cultured acquaintance with British accent: Oh, you like Wagner!

Liz: No, I like Elmer Fudd.

Didn't I write an essay about this once?
