This week, the cats of the internet are feeling extra sophisticated. Enjoy this internet-cat art school education.
First up an operatic tribute to the one of the internet's most beloved memes, the LOLcat. LOLPERA is "a giddily absurd opera with a score referencing everything from Gilbert and Sullivan to 80s power ballads." Californian fans can enjoy the show in person. Tickets are available online via LOLPERA. See a preview below.

Another high-art tribute to cats of the internet will be coming to Minneapolis in August. The Walker Art Center in Minneapolis will be hosting Internet Cat Video Film Festival.

Guests will enjoy their favorites on a big screen in the Walker's Open Field Space on August 30, 2012 at 8:30pm.
Next up, cats on flim. Here, Dog and Pony Show shows us what Star Wars may have looked like with feline castmembers. Then, SweetFurr's Pancake and Cooper release their inner superheroes as Superman and Batman in their video The Kitty Knight Rises & Kitty of Steel (below).
