Today, your final installment of 2016 Audition Tour Aria Frequency Lists, before I go off to review audition applications. (New York deadline coming up on Wednesday.)
Baritones and basses offered up a 3-way tie for #1 aria this year. (Valentin/Count/Pierrot for the former and Sarastro/DeBrogni/Zoroastro for the latter.) Bass-baritones almost had a 2-way tie between Leporello and Figaro.
And since an identity crisis dogs many of you lowest-voiced gents (“What am I? A bass? A bass-baritone?…”), I combined the bass and bass-baritone data in one file so you could see how the arias square off against one another.
