For you, the cher public and your discerning ears, La Cieca offers the following voice identification quiz. The music is “Brünnhilde’s Immolation Scene” and it is up to you (and I do mean you) to identify the 25 singers involved.

The usual rules apply: you post your guesses in the comments section and the first commenter to identify all 25 artists correctly wins. La Cieca asks that if you attempt more than once, you include in each comment a complete list of singers; i.e., don’t go saying, “I want to change #17 to Veronica Villaroel.” In the unlikely case that no parterrian gets all 25 singers, the entry with the most correct answers at the end of the contest (Saturday, May 11, 2013 at 11:00 am) will be awarded the prize.

And what is that prize, you ask? Why, nothing less than your own copy of Wagner at the Met: Legendary Performances. In case the winner hails from a place unserved by, La Cieca reserves the right to substitute another prize of equivalent value.

Ready, cher public? Start listening!

Again La Cieca extends her thanks to her dear friend Donald Collup for his tireless efforts in preparing this audio quiz.
