Lucy Wins It All!

By Galegirl

Do you know Lucy, aka @singingscholar on Twitter, aka host of the blog Opera Obsession?

Well, you should. She’s a winner in so many ways. Recently, she won my opera headlines microcontest, a warmie-uppie for #operaplot 2011–the only person in all of cyberspace to provide all the right answers.

What were the questions? I thought you’d never ask. But this time they will be followed by Lucy’s answers:

  1. FATHER’S CURSE TRIGGERS EVENTS ENDING IN KIDS’ DEATHS
    (La Forza del Destino)
  2. EVIL MAGICIAN MAKES WRITER’S THREE ROMANCES DISAPPEAR
    (The Tales of Hoffmann)
  3. BOY WINS GIRL THROUGH TRIAL OF FIRE AND WATER
    (The Magic Flute)
  4. AGING NOBLEWOMAN BLESSES YOUNGER RIVAL’S NUPTIALS
    (Der Rosenkavalier)
  5. HERO’S DEATH BRINGS DOOMSDAY
    (Götterdämmerung)
    Lucy wins it all!

And what does Lucy win for all her erudition? Why, a beautiful Operatoonity mug, that’s what.

Moral of the story: The spoils of victory always go to singing scholars with an opera obsession–at least on this blog they do!
