  • Congratulations, spiderman. I could barely recognise three or four singers.

  • spiderman

    Yay! Thanks! I was pretty happy and a little bit proud about having recognised Zampieri! ;)

  • Christian Ocier

    I recognized Rysanek, Eaglen, Balslev, Crepin, Varnay, Studer, Moser, Silja, Flagstad, and Jones. How odd to hear Zampieri in a Wagner role!

  • Luvtennis

    Yay, I got 8’of thirteen right! I left two blank.

  • Apulia

    Oh I never do well on these things at all, and do even worse when German opera is involved. But I hope I’m allowed to have a favorite part--and that’s going from Bjoner (did her German always sound so….Norwegian?) to Crespin, it is like going from Noray itself
    to where l’oranger fleurit…..

    • Apulia

      Norway itself, not Noray, I wish this thing had a proofreader!

      • Cicciabella

        Even better, it has a correcter, dear Apulia. You can edit your own posts and magic away all the typos.

        • Apulia

          which I do not seem to be able to find….ma, grazie, cara Cicciabella

              thank you--I have finally figured it out--I have two browsers and I’m signed in on one name on one of them and another name on the other (which was not my intention, but….) and if I’m looking at the message on the wrong browser there’s no edit function; miracles of the internet age…..
