And for your enjoyment, a continuation of audition tour data – this year’s list of mezzo arias. Clicking through should show you a large PDF.
These statistics are churned by downloading all of the arias that mezzos include in their 4-aria list, then sorting by the number of times each aria is mentioned. This year I summarized the data by the % of singers who listed any given aria. Within each group, I’ve sorted by composer so that it’s a bit easier than usual to find things.
Trends? Dorabella has smacked Charlotte out of first place. (Probably because we asked for Mozart…) And there are a few new entrants into the top 10: “Wie du warst,” “Voi che sapete,” “Parto, parto,” the Seguedilla and “Things Change, Jo” :)
