Opera Quiz: Which Philip Glass Opera is It?

By David Salazar

Philip Glass is one of the greatest and most influential composers over the past 50 years.

It’s likely that you’ve heard his music, whether you realize it or not. And if not his music specifically, then music inspired or copying his style very directly.

That’s how much of an imprint Glass has had over the last half-century. And he hasn’t only done it at the movies or classical music in general, but in the opera world as well, composed over 26 works to date.

For this week’s quiz, which coincides with Glass’ birthday on Jan. 31, we will ask you to identify which opera is being referred to in our prompt. Glass fans might know all the answers, but everyone else is bound to make some unique discoveries.

As always, enjoy!
