Think you can sum up an opera plot in 140 characters or less?
The very popular Twitter contest, #operaplot, is back. Last year there were over 500 entries competing for prizes from 32 opera houses. Click here for the 2009 winning tweets.
This year, the prizes are bigger and more drool-worthy. The grand prize is from Opera Theatre Company in Dublin: a pair of tickets to The Marriage of Figaro, 3 nights accommodation and up to 1000€ to cover flights.
To take a look at some of the imaginative and hilarious entries, click here.
If you have a Twitter account and would like to try your hand at #operaplot, (as well as having your tweets judged by none other than tenor Jonas Kaufmann), the contest runs until midnight Friday 30th April EST.
