Twitter an Operaplot – GENIUS!

I’m terribly disappointed. Somehow, I managed to miss the Twitter an Operaplot contest that’s been going on since March! Seriously, people, someone needs to alert me to these kind of things! The winners have already been announced, but I’m keeping an eye out for next year.

The basic idea is to describe an opera in 140 characters or less. Here’s some (hilarious!) highlights:

The Flying Dutchman: Let me get this straight: unfathomable treasure if I betroth my loopy daughter to a ghost? Deal. She’ll meet you by the fjord.

Don Giovanni: Dear Don, 1003 women in Spain alone is too many. You’ll be in deep shit when my dad’s ghost gets to you. Go to hell. Love, Anna

And my personal favorite:
Salome: Do a little dance (for Herod), make a little love (with the severed head of John the Baptist), get killed tonight!

See all the winners and finalists here.
