Only two questions remain unanswered in the film quiz as [livejournal.com profile] shezan correctly identified no.7 as the rather tedious The Longest Day.

Final clues for the remaining two:

9. Is a WW2 flick with Gary Sinese. The title references a seasonal piece of music.

10. Has rather a lot of partner swapping for a Hollywood studio production of its era. It's not 'Fear of Flying'.

ETA: Extra picture for 10.



ETA2: Done!

Congrats to [livejournal.com profile] f4f3 for A Midnight Clear and [livejournal.com profile] dherblay for Beat the Devil.

Last year I offered you an opera lyrics quiz so I thought I'd do another one. None of the operas are duplicated from last year.

So, here are ten libretto excerpts, translated into English where that is not the original language. Your task is to identify the operas in question.

1. Ascend, O my beloved. Ascend the highest place of imperial sovereignty

2. Your daughter is monstrous

3. Torture of every kind may await me

4. I shall lament my fate so cruel and so pitiless

5. The wind is from the west, a lazy sea, the sky overcast, a stagnant smell from the lagoon

6. Bravely blended, brotherly love born in the drink from our blood

7. I shall dry these weeping flagstones. With my own lips they shall be dried

8. We return to our lasses like fortunate traders, triumphant with the spoils of the vanquish'd invaders

9. Shepherd cease your singing, for all our gaiety has turned to pain

10. If the water is deep we will swim. If it is too fast we will build boats

One clue in the music quiz stumped everybody.

8. adore, breast, mournful, beloved, ETA lightning, ETA2 sparks

It's the aria V'adoro pupille from Handel's Giulio Cesare.

Good work on the other ones guys and gals. I was especially impressed by [livejournal.com profile] gnimmel's wide ranging opera expertise.

Just one left to get in the quiz. From the previous hint, one can deduce that it is translated from Italian. The user pic on this post is also a clue of sorts.
