Sorry to have been AWOL for so long everyone. It’s been a busy summer and I hope you are ALL having a fantastic summer!
Today, I bring you the FIRST EVER OPERA TEEN CAPTION COMPETITION!!!!!
The idea of the game is that you have to give the picture at the bottom of the post a fun or humorous caption and I’ll decide the best one! The winner will win a free download of Carmen by Bizet. The recording is the 1984 Migenes-Johnson, Placido Domingo, Ruggero Raimondi and Faith Esham recording that I’m almost 100% is out of print now. The movie was just re-released on DVD but the CD is yet to be released again. Even though Migenes-Johnson is a soprano, her Carmen is wonderful and the rest of the cast is in great voice! It’s a treasure for any music collection.
- You may only enter once.
- You can submit your caption in three ways. You can enter through a comment on this post, email(firstname.lastname@example.org) with the subject subject “Caption Contest”, or tweet with the hashtag “#OTCaption”.

- I will pick the winner and they will be contacted soon after.
