By a margin of more than two to one, the cher public has chosen “O Scarpia, avanti a Dio!” as the greatest of all opera curtain lines.
It’s come down to this: the two finalists in the Best Opera Curtain Line competition.
We move now to the semi-finals of the Best Opera Curtain Line competition.
And now, with your cooperation, cher public, we are about to decide which is the best opera curtain line of all opera curtain lines.
With thanks to commenter Krunoslav for the suggestion, we will kick off our new game with the theme “Best Curtain Line.”
A new series where we pit Zerbinetta against Zerlina, Caballé against Callas, Berg against Bellini in the ultimate operatic showdown.
