    The fachme.com game

    So there's this website called fachme.com and what you do is you put in some roles and it generates a list of recommended roles based on what other singers have done (I think that's the basis). It's great. The game is as follows:
    Pick a singer who is active today. Put in 10 roles from their stage (NOT concert) repertoire. (You may also do 9 roles and add in 1 they'll be debuting on stage within the next year, as I have done.) Then, come to this thread and put in the first 10 results the singer has NOT performed onstage (concert repertoire is acceptable). If you want, you can also list the 10 roles that you put in.
    I'll start the ball rolling with Sonya Yoncheva.
    What I put in:
    Marguerite inFaust
    Mimi in La boheme
    Violetta Valery inLa traviata
    Vitellia in La clemenza da Tito
    Iolanta in Iolanta
    Countess Almaviva in Le nozze de Figaro
    Elisabeth of Valois in Don Carlo
    Antonia in Les Contes d'Hoffmann
    Desdemona in Otello
    Norma in Norma

    And I got:
    Rosalinde in Die Fledermaus
    Adele in Die Fledermaus
    Frasquita in Carmen
    Medee in Medee
    Elisabeth in Tannhauser
    Amore in Orfeo ed Euridice
    Alceste in Alceste
    Amenaide in Tancredi
    La princesse in L'enfant et les sortileges
    Elsa in Lohengrin
    Interesting results. Your turn!

    Interesting. It sounds more like a valid tool for singers than a game, in terms of picking their repertoire.

    The only thing is that it supposes that the 10 roles were appropriate to their voices, when often they are not.
