Opera Crossword: Who are these ‘Ariadne auf Naxos’ Interpreters?

By Anibal Salazar

We are going to switch things up this week with a new format to the puzzle.

In lieu of our usual, complete the name, we are going to ask you to find the last name of the artist referenced in the clue. So get out your history books and brush up on your “Ariadne auf Naxos” interpreters because this puzzle will focus on several renowned divas who have taken on the titular role.

instructions: You are free to solve the word search directly on your mobile or desktop device; click the first tile and then type in the letters to fill in the adjoining ones. Once you type in the correct name, the boxes will turn pink. For those using a mobile device, we highly recommend turning it horizontal to maximize getting the best view of the puzzle. Or if you are more traditional in approach, you are free to print it out as well.

As Always, enjoy!
