Opera Quiz: Identify that Opera by Its Opening Bars of Music

By David Salazar

Happy New Year!

For this week’s quiz we open at the top of the opera score with the opening musical moments. In this quiz, we show you the opening bars of an opera and then have you choose which opera it corresponds to.

Non-musicians might seem daunted by this challenge, but it will allow you to recall your favorite operas and match them up with their respective musical language. There is always something fascinating about discovering what a musical passage actually looks like on the page (Only piano reductions will be used).

As always, enjoy!
