Hunkering Down for #operaplot 2011

By Galegirl

hunkering down for #operaplot 2011I don’t know how I missed the Omniscient Mussel’s  Save-the-Date post regarding #Operaplot 2011. But I visited Miss Mussel’s website, and there it was.

Operaplot 2011 will take place between April 11 and 15 (the same days I’ve been called for jury duty–I don’t how I’m going to be affected just yet by that eventuality).

In case you’re not familiar with #Operaplot 2011, the basic premise is that you Tweet plots to an opera–any opera–between April 11 and 15 always finishing with a hashtag and the word operaplot (#operaplot). Describing the entire plot of an opera in 140 characters is the basic idea. Miss Mussel will be sharing more guidelines soon, which may differ slightly with last year’s official rules.

Last year, I didn’t enter. I was new to Twitter so I merely enjoyed the entries filling my Twitter feed. I’d like to enter this year–we’ll see what happens.  Anyway, to warm up your #operaplot chops, here’s a few opera headlines to decipher.

  1. FATHER’S CURSE TRIGGERS EVENTS ENDING IN KIDS’ DEATHS
  2. EVIL MAGICIAN MAKES WRITER’S THREE ROMANCES DISAPPEAR
  3. BOY WINS GIRL THROUGH TRIAL OF FIRE AND WATER
  4. AGING NOBLEWOMAN BLESSES YOUNGER RIVAL’S NUPTIALS
  5. HERO’S DEATH BRINGS DOOMSDAY

I’m not going to provide the answers this time. However, anyone who can answer all five correctly will be entered in a drawing to win this handsome (if I do say so myself) Operatoonity mug.

Please send all answers to galemartin08@gmail.com rather than leave them in the comments.

Start thinking about your entries for #operaplot 2011. (And those of you with nearly inactive Twitter accounts need to rev them up to be ready for April 11).
