    Default The Opera Overtures Game (Qualifying Round Ten)

    Welcome to the Qualifying Round Ten of our opera overtures game. As with the previous rounds, there are 10 pieces for our listening and voting pleasure with the 2 highest scorers advancing to the Semi-Finals.

    Rules of Engagement:

    1. You may vote once daily. In addition, your 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 piece may receive more than 6 points.

    3. Round Ten ends with the first entry to reach 100 points.

    Make Your Mark:

    Bizet - Carmen (Act I Prelude) - 0
    Handel - Acis and Galatea (Act I Sinfonia) - 0
    Handel - Hercules (Act I Overture) - 0
    Hanson - Merry Mount (Act I Prelude) - 0
    Mozart - Cosi Fan Tutte (Overture) - 0

    Puccini - Madama Butterfly (Act III Introduction) - 0
    Rossini - Semiramide (Overture) - 0
    Strauss, R. - Arabella (Act III Prelude) - 3 (+3)
    Wagner - Der fliegende Holländer (Overture) - 5 (+5)
    Wallace, WV - Maritana (Overture) - 2 (+2)

    I just had to give Wallace a couple of points - nothing colossal or deep, but the overture is beautifully structured with very appealing melodies. I've been injected with the Maritana Virus.

    I treat my music like I treat my pets. It’s something to own, care about and curate with attention to detail. From a blog by hjr.
