On Site Opera Quiz

a #WorldOperaDay event

How well do you really know opera? For instance, why is World Opera Day on October 25?

To celebrate the day, On Site Opera will offer a live, free, ten-question, multiple-choice quiz. There will be questions involving composers Handel, Monteverdi, Rameau, Rossini, and Strauss, singer Lauritz Melchior, and such features as libretto titles and bootleg recording. The quiz will be self scoring, so no one but you will know how you did.

It should be lots of fun. If you don’t think so, the cost of admission to this free quiz will be cheerfully refunded. To accommodate as many participants as possible, the quiz will be offered live at 8 AM, 2 PM, and 8 PM Eastern Time.

Founded in 2012, On Site Opera produces operas at sites appropriate to them, like Pygmalion at Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum or Il tabarro on a floating vessel at a river dock. They have produced commonly performed operas, “wrong-composer” operas (like Paisiello’s The Barber of Seville or Portugal’s The Marriage of Figaro), and rarely performed operas (like Shostakovich’s The Tale of the Silly Baby Mouse or Gershwin’s Blue Monday) and have even commissioned operas. Performers have included Stephanie Blythe. For more information:
