So This Is What's Called A Lunchtime Poll...
You win five million dollars from the Publisher's Sweepstakes and the same day that that big Ed guy gives you the cheque....
Oops, wrong poll.
Today's lunchtime Twitter poll topic asked: What is your favourite opera?
@LarryDHylton - The Marriage of Figaro...I love the comedic simplicity
@DrGeoduck - Falstaff
@zackhayhurst - Favourite opera has got to be Eugene Onegin
@operafiles - My favourite is Rigoletto by Verdi. Best performance by Pavarotti, E. Gruberova, S.M. Ines
@tenorbrianlee - Puccini's La Boheme
@tonysolitro - Salome, hands down!
@primopromo2 - Walkure no doubt
@colllleen - My vote goes to Turandot!
Check out our friends on Twitter and follow Vancouver Opera on Twitter at @vancouveropera for the inside track.
Our Facebook friends has also chimed in. Everybody wants to play lunchtime poll!
Katie King - The all-purpose answer is "the one I'm seeing next."
Mike Nyby - Falstaff!
Helen Pinsky - Carmen, every time. But I adored Norma - in fact I love most opera that have strong female lead characters.
Jana Miller - Turandot
Caryn Cameron - Tosca! Although not this latest incarnation at the Met. Red dress on a red couch=invisible Tosca.
Damon Chitsaz - Fidelio!
Marlene Johnson - La traviata with Placido Domingo
Carolyn Rapanos - Die Zauberflote
Michael Colbruno - I could listen to La traviata and La boheme every single day. Of the lesser known operas, Iphigenie en Tauride, hands down.
Wendy von Stadt - Le nozze di Figaro, BELLA!
Alessia Todde - Travita
Carmen Hung - Tosca
Russell Wodell - Jenufa
Thanks everyone for playing! In the words of Veronica Sawyer, "How very."
