Your favourite five acts

If we exclude Das Rheingold, and allow acts to include any prelude that gives 27 to choose from. I've also assumed nobody is going to choose something from the first 3 operas. You don't have to put them in order, but please, only 5. Feel free to explain your choices.

My top 5 acts are

Der fliegende Holländer, Act 1

Der fliegende Holländer, Act 2

Der fliegende Holländer, Act 3

After that?

Die Walküre, Act 3

and then perhaps Die Meistersinger, Act 3
"Pray heaven that soon a wife will keep faith with him!" Senta speaking of the Hollander.
