    Default My Favorite Operas (pianoville)

    This game revolves around operas, and pianoville has picked his 13 favorites. When the voting is complete, I'll announce the top ten operas selected by our resident opera enthusiasts.

    Rules of Engagement:

    1. You may vote once daily - voting sessions must be at least 6 hours apart.

    2. When you vote, you will have 10 points to distribute as you wish except that no opera may receive more than 5 points.

    3. The game ends with the first opera to reach 100 points.

    Note: None of the games in this series will include a half-time adjustment. I've decided not to eliminate any favorite works of participants.

    Let's Begin:

    Bartok: Bluebeard's Castle - 0
    Beethoven: Fidelio - 0
    Berg: Wozzeck - 0
    Bizet: Carmen - 0
    Debussy: Pelleas et Melisande - 2 (+2)
    Mozart: Le Nozze di Figaro - 2 (+2)

    Mozart: Don Giovanni - 0
    Puccini: Gianni Schicchi - 0
    Puccini: La Boheme - 0
    Verdi: Otello - 0
    Wagner: Parsifal - 2 (+2)
    Wagner: Siegfried - 2 (+2)
    Wagner: Tristan und Isolde - 2 (+2)
