So some of you who have been here for a long time might remember that mamascarlatti and amfortas have done three installments of the 30-Day opera challenge. I have decided to do a fourth installment. So, without further adieu, the opera challenge info:
There are 30 questions, one for each day starting today. Please answer as many questions as you can over the course of the 30 days. If you start after the first day, do not start from the beginning of the list. Instead, please start with the question for that day. Pictures and videos can be posted as part of your responses.

And now... The OFFICIAL question list!

1. Best opening scene.
2. Aria you think is scary.
3. Best purely instrumental moment (aside from overtures/preludes).
4. Smartest opera character.
5. Classic movie that should be made into an opera.
6. Favorite opera director.
7. Opera that best illustrates Murphy's Law (whatever can go wrong, will go wrong).

9. Opera composer most likely to win in a bar fight.
10. Best suicide.
