    Default 5 Arias

    Hello Hello, I'm new on here and I have a question! I'm getting ready for the Met Auds this is my first time (I'm 25)! I have a very big voice and I'm fairly flexible. I'm having a hard time making a balanced list. I either hear that is too heavy of a list or the songs are too light for you! AHHH! Well, this is my list so far and I just wanted input.

    Divintes du Styx - Gluck
    Non Mir Dir - Mozart
    Dich, Theure Halle - Wagner
    In Quelle Trine Morbide - Puccini
    The Embroidery Aria - Britten

    Thanks so much!

    Hello, there, LeahClef! "Dich, Teure Halle" from Wagner's Tannhauser has a pedigree as an audition piece. Gwyneth Jones relates the story of a auditioner who sang it note-perfect, but something was clearly missing. She asked the aspirant "do you know what the words mean? do you know what she's singing about??" When the (expected) "no" response came, it was clear why it didn't come to life.

    I once made this part of my sig: "REMEMBER: CLARITY! The big notes will take care of themselves, it's the little notes and the words that accompany them that are important." Direct from the composer- this quote.

    I'm wondering mostly about my 20th cent. Aria. It's really common and I keep going between No word from Tom and the Embroidery Aria. Any suggestions for a good big aria that is a little less common?
