Elaine Fine directed my attention (Yours, too, if you read her blog) to this, where anyone from anywhere (except countries that censor the internet*) can choose his or her favorite from the Wagnerian Idol contest in Seattle.

I’m sorry, though, that they listed the winners of the contest, along with the audience favorite and orchestra favorite (How about that?! The orchestra chose a fave.). Might that information color our choices?

Or maybe that’s just me.

Anyhoo, check it out. Only if you want to, of course. I’m not being a mom (or a conductor) here and ordering you to do this.

For me, the orchestra seems more present than the singers. Oh well. And the clips are too short. Double oh well.

*Countries listed on Wikipedia are:
Belarus, Burma, China, Cuba, Egypt, Iran, North Korea, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Tunisia, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Vietnam

Any italicized countries have visited my site (if only for a second).

  1. Thanks for sharing this, Patty! So cool to see this, especially since the orchestra favorite, Nadine Weissmann, is was a college friend…

    The clips are definitely too short though…
