That’s not a juicy, attention-grabbing-headline-that-will-later-be-revealed-as-practically-a-lie, folks. It’s 100% true.
If you’re declared the best #operaplotter in the Twitterverse, you can go to Ireland gratis.
When she was planning this year’s incarnation of #operaplot, Miss Mussel was sure it would be a much more low-key affair. It’s been a tough year for the arts everywhere.
Then she got an email from Ireland and her jaw hit the floor. For a few moments, this bivalve was at a loss for words. Those that know Miss Mussel well are aware of what an accomplishment that is. Well done, Sorcha!
Ladies and gents, #operaplotters of all ages, this year’s headlining sponsor is Opera Theatre Company, the national Irish touring company. They mostly do Baroque, early Classical and contemporary productions, most of which tour extensively throughout Ireland.
This summer the OTC production of Alcina will be appearing at the Buxton Opera Festival in England.
They’re so confident about their shows, they even offer a money-back guarantee to first-timers. Noice.
OTC’s contribution to the prize pool is as follows:
- A pair of tickets to The Marriage of Figaro (7th May to 2nd June)
- 3 nights accommodation
- Up to 1000€ to cover flights
So, ummmm…..better get practicing!
Also, tell all your friends.
