mawrdew_thumbSo, just as an anchor posting for a return to discussion of Mawrdew Czgowchwz (to resume Wednesday morning), La Cieca offers a little trivia question for the cher public. No prizes for the winner, but your doyenne is sure that sheer competitiveness will inspire you as so often before.

In the second chapter of Mawrdew Czgowchwz, two earth-shaking operatic events are scheduled to transpire in the same week at the Old Met: la Czgowchwz’s role debut as Isolde and Morgana Neri‘s farewell as Norma. These events were fictional, of course, so your question is: what operas actually did play the Met on those two nights?
