    Default Loveliest Sopranos and Mezzo-sopranos Builder

    This silly game is intended to be a sister thread to the "Loveliest sopranos...." thread. Since the new subforum is kinda serious this game is meant to be the exact opposite of that. I think we need both the serious AND the silly because although we take opera seriously, we shouldn't take ourselves too seriously.

    This is what I have in mind (or rather, I saw a game like this on another forum and I nicked the idea from there):
    On the "Loveliest sopranos...." thread we posted pictures of ladies in opera we thought are beautiful, cute, lovable and sexy - in this game we'll actually get to vote, but not vote in the way that we did on the top 100 operas.

    The first poster (which will be me) will give one point to three ladies. Always write the names of the three ladies you vote for in bold letters. Behind those names I'll put (+1). So, my post will look like this:

    Anna Netrebko (+1)
    Renée Fleming (+1)
    Kiri Te Kanawa (+1



    Let's say that Almaviva is the next poster and he wants to vote for Jane Eaglen, Jessye Norman and Renée Fleming. Than his post should look something like this:

    Renée Fleming (+2)

    Anna Netrebko (+1)
    Kiri Te Kanawa (+1)
    Jane Eaglen (+1
    Jessye Norman (+1)


    Every person can vote once a day and the singer who gets up to (+20) first will be the winner. I don't know if by the end of this we'll have a top 10, top 20 or whatever, but let's see how far we'll get.

    You must vote for three singers. You can either add two new names or give those already listed a second vote (+2).

    Will continue to feed the beast of Almas unquenchable obsession with Netrebko and vote her in (although Anna is slipping a bit lately) Best "cougar" over 50 catagory is Fleming but not overall

    Netrebko
    De Niese
    Gens


    Anna Netrebko (+3)
    Danielle de Niese (+2)
    Veronique Gens (+1)
    Renée Fleming (+1)
    Kiri Te Kanawa (+1)
    Dawn Upshaw (+1)

    I vote for them as they were at the peak of their beauty or adorable-ness (or whatever you want to call it). So, if I vote for, say, Kiri I mean the Kiri of the 1970's, not the Kiri of 2010 (although she still looks great for her age).

    Lovely soprano builder, huh? I thought this thread would be about a new profession, a mix of personal gym trainer and voice coach.

    OK, I vote three times for my Anna, she got 7 points now.
    Oh, I can't? Damn!

    All right, then.

    I'll vote for Anna, Miah Persson, and Isabel Leonard.

    Anna Netrebko (+5)
    Danielle de Niese (+3)
    Veronique Gens (+1)
    Renée Fleming (+2)
    Kiri Te Kanawa (+1)
    Dawn Upshaw (+1)
    Kate Royale (+1)
    Natalie Dessay (+1)
    Marina Poplavskaya (+1)
    Miah Persson (+1)
    Isabel Leonard (+1)

    ----

    DA: "although Anna is slipping a bit lately"

    Says who? She is at the peak of her career, with improved voice, and, cough cough, a bit chubby because a real woman has curves!

    Gaston: "Let's say that Almaviva is the next poster and he wants to vote for Jane Eaglen, Jessye Norman and Renée Fleming." Yeah, right!

    Yes, I was initially worried that people would interpret the builder part the wrong way and that we would get replies like, "ok, I vote for Danielle's butt, Angela's legs and Anna's boobs."

    Have to wait for draculette to come online and then she'll just vote for herself.
