Opera for the ADD Set

Let's face it, life is busy and it is hard to unwind, let alone find the time to escape to the theatre for a few hours of quality opera. Blackberries and iPhones makes getting away even harder, the office is in your pocket now, jut a button press away. For those strapped for time, Twitter has you covered. The Omniscient Mussel has compiled a list of Twitter Opera Synopses which are limited to 140 characters.

My favorite, for Carmen: If a cigarette doesn’t kill you, the girl who made it will…

But then I'm an ex-smoker, and a hopeless romantic.

Your can read the rest of them here. And when you come see Peter Grimes on Saturday you can Twitter your own synopsis.

Enjoy!
