Quiz Outcomes

  • 1.
    Baroque / Classical
    You love your lengthy arias, your stories of God and ancient heroes, and this sense of the ethereal. For you, it's definitely the operas of Handel or perhaps those of Mozart that would occupy you for days.
  • 2.
    Bel Canto
    It's all about vocal fireworks and catchy tunes for you, even if the plots tend toward the melodramatic. Donizetti, Rossini, Bellini, and much of Verdi's operas are definitely the ones you tune in to constantly.
  • 3.
    French Grand Opera
    You want to be swept up in an epic romance because it's all about heightened emotions for you on the biggest scale possible. Halevy, Meyerbeer, Massenet. Name one and you'll be happy.
  • 4.
    Verismo
    Full-blooded passion is always on your mind, especially if it tells stories about worlds or characters that you feel you could find yourself immersed with. You don't necessarily care if the story is intellectually motivated as long as it is intensely passionate. Operas like Puccini's "La Bohème" or Mascagni's "Cavalleria Rusticana" are definitely up your alley.
  • 5.
    German Music Drama
    Give you a complex and philosophical story with expansive melodies and you feel right at home. Wagner and Strauss' Epics are the works that make you happiest.
