Aida competition part 2

And the answer to our Aida competition is: Loraine Whitwell
Congratulations to the 9 winners of the coveted chocolate fish:

Peggy Tompkins, Wendy Aitken, Polly Mason, Jane Edwards, Carol Kempton, Alan Edwards, Leanne Veitch, Deborah Dons and Luïsa Pardas. 

As a bonus, here is Luciano Pavarotti with Celeste Aida, with the Vienna State Opera in 1984. In the opera Aida, by Giuseppe Verdi, it is sung by Radamès, the young Egyptian warrior who wishes to be chosen as a Commander of the Egyptian army. He dreams of gaining victory on the battle field and also for the Ethiopian slave girl, Aida, with whom he is secretly in love.
