Opera by Twitter

For anyone who hasn't heard of it yet, you can contribute to the Royal Opera House's experiment to engage Twitter users to help write a new opera. The BBC's covered it.

"We’re investigating how short, 140-character contributions can build upon each other to create a non-linear narrative – like a Choose Your Own Adventure story or a game of Consequences"

If you've not contributed yet, there's still time - just tweet your line with the hashtag #youropera or else tweet it to @youropera (someone else will be setting it to music, so they only want only contributions of lyrics, or should I say libretto, not music).

A very clever way to get publicity and promote the Garden! Kudos to their PR/advertising people - anyone know who they are?

Now if only ticket prices go down...
