Top Ten Opera Choruses

Postby hal 9000 » Wed Mar 21, 2007 7:21 pm

Well start making your lists my friends. OperaTenor, the winner of the Top Ten Arias thread, as selected the new topic:

Top Ten Opera Choruses

Take a few moments to think of your ten favorite opera choruses, list them in order of preference, and submit that list to me no later than Monday, March 26th, 2007 @ 6:00PM EST. I will compile the lists and release the results later that same evening.

I have my list ready, so the first person to submit will receive my list in return (so I can't be a meanie and cheat... :twisted: ).

Let the game begin!

I just sent my list in, and something occurred to me: I made no mention of light or comic opera choruses in qualifying the contest. I intended it to only include grand opera, but if someone has already included something like G&S, c'est le vie.

I may have to buy some Italian sausage on the way home. It could end up as sausage and peppers :yum: or in a ratatouille :doubleyum:. Either one is very good with pasta or ciabatta, but both are even better with garlic smashed potatos.

Excuse me, I have to refill my coffee. And I may have to get out a couple of girl scout cookies... :popcorn:

Hmmm, nobody likes Russian Dressing? Did Barfle not vote?

I prefer French Fries ala Bizet. I would have chosen German Chocolate Cake ala Mozart, but the Wagner icing kind of turned me off.

Nobody seems to care for a slice of Porgy Pie? That's surprising.

I thought no meat Fridays was only on "Good Friday". Or maybe that is only in the Catholic religion?

For Catholics it is no meat on Fridays throughout Lent.

Ash Wednesday and Good Friday we fast - only one meal on those days.

Well, if you want Italian Sausage, there's a perfectly nice version made with turkey, available in your local megamart. I don't think you can make it with fish, though. You can have real sausage and peppers tomorrow, right?

You might consider a nice bouillabaise, or a cioppino. While playing appropriate French or Italian opera choruses. :guitar: Or you could always zip :scooter: on out to Sandy Eggo, snag some fish tacos :sombrero: at Rubio's. And they're doing their special crispy shrimp tacos again, too. Sadly, I don't think there are any Mexican opera choruses we could play for the fish taco meal.

Funny...if I had the choice, I would choose fish (seafood) over meat anyday. Unfortunately my better half has a severe fish alergy. I eat the stuff whenever I can and crabcakes are a fav. Try a nice slab of ahi tuna...very satisfying seared in sesame oil with a touch of ginger. Yum If you want a lighter fare, try monk fish broiled with butter and garlic
