Opera Quiz For May

This spring VPR Classical has been featuring a series of listener-interactive quizzes on Saturdays during our opera program.

You may have noticed things have changed a little now, as of last weekend with our two new programs: A Passion for Opera with Peter Fox Smith, and Saturday Matinee.

One thing that has not changed is the fact that we're still having fun sharing a monthly opera quiz, opening the phone and internet lines, and inviting you to take your best guess as to who the "mystery voice" is.

Our May quiz features a singer whose personality and legend are nearly as towering as the treasury of music she's left as her legacy. You may have been thrown off by the fact that one of our musical clues was Wagner - she's not known for her Wagnerian roles, but rather for her Verdi and Puccini and Donizetti. This month's mystery voice is....."La Divina" - soprano Maria Callas!

Keep listening this summer for more quizzes and other fun stuff during our new program, A Passion for Opera!

  1. That's nice. It's so great that you have something for everyone like jazz and clasical music. I don't think I would do so well on the opera quiz. Overall, great stuff you have here.
