It Ain't Over 'Til the Fat Lady Tweets

The inexorable march toward the Apocalypse continues apace: the first Twitter Opera is about to debut in London (there's probably a joke about the "Upper-Class Twit of the Year Competition" to be made):
The libretto has been taken from the sublime to a ridiculous conclusion. Instead of a "little book" - its literal meaning – the latest, and most avant-garde, of operas will feature little "tweets". In a blatant attempt to shake off its fusty image, the Royal Opera House has teamed up with the micro-blogging site to produce The Twitter Opera with a libretto composed entirely of public tweets.
Curiously, I was going to tweet this over at Twitter, but it appears to be down again. Pity.
