An Epic Tale Of A Missing Threaded Elbow Screw

Shoppers at Ikea in London this past week have been entertained by an in-store opera that takes advantage of ready-made Ikea sets to represent different areas of domestic life. Called "Flatpack", the opera offers answers to questions such as "Why is my bookcase called Billy?" "What is domestic harmony?" and "What do our homes have to say about us?" The opera is performed by Mammoth Music Theater.

You can read about it here and see a clip down below.

A sequel called "How the $#@! Do You Expect Me to Follow Your $#@! Directions" is currently in the works.
