"Airy and a bit dark" might describe Neumann TLM193. Although I've never thought about mine in quite those terms, it is a lovely sounding mic, would be good for "operatic vocals", and on many acoustic guitar styles, and generally within budget.TLM170 also very nice but considerably more expensive.

A ribbon that might also fit that description could be the Rode active ribbon. I don't own one, have only heard samples online, but sounds sort of like that.

IMHO. Good luck.
