QUIXOTE'S QUEST - Week 3 Clues!

2/22/11 UPDATE:

The Week #3 "Quixote’s Quest" necklace has been recovered!

Robin Kessler braved the cold today to retrieve Dulcinea's necklace from Branch's Quarter Horses, home of Desperado and Millie (who play Rocinante and Dapple in Don Quixote). Thanks to everyone who participated, and remember that our final hunt will begin on Monday--so stay tuned for a last chance to win tickets to Don Quixote.

_______________________________________________________

Can you believe it?! That absent-minded Dulcinea has lost her necklace again! Last week, an enterprising operagoer found it at the 8th floor Arts & Literature desk at the Central Branch of the Seattle Public Library; the week before that, it turned up in a windmill in the Mt. Baker neighborhood's Bradner Gardens Park. Where has it run off to now?

The quest is once again yours, fearless scavenger hunters of Seattle. Who will be the first to find Dulcinea's necklace this week? There's a free pair of tickets to Seattle Opera's fast-approaching production of Don Quixote for the first person to retrieve the necklace. Read the full details and rules of the scavenger hunt here.

Here is the first clue to the location of this week's necklace.

CLUE #1

“Rameau” wrote music; “Zweig” wrote libretti; the English version holds fourth with another element of opera’s spectacle up in Snohomish.

Update, dated 2/22 at 9:30 am:

CLUE #2

They offer wisdom to tomorrow’s equestrians, not yesterday’s knights-errant.

Be the first one to retrieve the hidden necklace, and you're this week's winner of two tickets to the March 9 performance of Don Quixote.

But if you need more help, fear not. Just come back to this blog every morning this week (or check out our Facebook or Twitter pages) for a NEW CLUE every day until the necklace has been found. And don't forget: the final hunt begins next Monday.

Good luck, and happy hunting!
