OPERA? OPERA WHAT? WHAT IS THIS? IS THIS OPERA? — [*This opera*] This work [*knots*] binds operatic practices with elements from old and new media (e.g., TV, YouTube) into a chain of [*preposterous*] ludicrous [*events*] episodes. Disparate pieces [*with*] of text—original or [*appropriated*] quoted—generate [*symbols*] characters and situations on the border between the mundane and the absurd. #PostOpera #KnowYourMeme #FunnyCats
