Cogito argo sum

The frontrunner in our devilishly difficult “D’amor sull’ali” quiz is Giasone (pictured), with 22 of 30 singers correctly identified. Runner up, ironically, is Enzo Bordello, with 18 names in place. Remember, cher public, the competition continues through August 14 at midnight, at which point the lavish gift package supplied by Opera Depot will be awarded.

    Congrsatulations to the ones that guessed more than ten :) . I made a half-hearted attempt to this, but it was too much effort and after a few minutes of trying to guess the quiz I just had to go back to Maria. She is Leonora! At least pour moi.

    Congratulations to those who have made brave attempts with this admittedly difficult quiz (but one with a great prize package). Without giving too much away, I will simply say that all of the clips come from live performances--this might call into question several of the guesses have have been made. In addition, a few singers have been mentioned but they haven’t been dropped into the correct slot or ended up in a complete answer.
