The show must go on, as murder, music and mayhem run riot on the night...

The Opera House, Ankh-Morpork...a huge, rambling building, where innocent young sopranos are lured to their destiny by a strangely familiar evil mastermind in a hideously-deformed evening dress...

At least, he hopes so. But Granny Weatherwax, Discworld's most famous witch, is in the audience. And she doesn't hold with that sort of thing.

So there's going to be trouble (but nevertheless a good evening's entertainment with murders you really hum...) Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " The Lancre witches books are the funniest in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Monkeytennis | 1/30/2014

    " Habit of a change of pace for a disc world book.more murder mystery really.enjoyed it alot, and really brought the witch's to life more I feel than other books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Magda | 1/27/2014

    " Excellent spoof of "Phantom of the Opera," in Pratchett's usual witty style. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meggen | 1/24/2014

    " A very clever mixture of Phantom of the Opera meets a duo of meddling witches. Witty, clever, and sometimes irreverent. Another enjoyable Lankra withces addition from Terry Pratchet. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 kat | 1/21/2014

    " This one was better than I remembered. I think I didn't give the witch books enough credit the first time I read them. It's, like most of the witch ones, less laugh-out-loud funny and more a story about the power of stories -- with a heaping side dish of wisdom about humanity. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Adam Hoffman | 1/17/2014

    " The witches end up in a Phantom of the Opera situation. But with a bit more murder, a couple trolls, and a whole lot more Granny and Nanny. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nikki | 1/17/2014

    " I think my favorite part was the exclamation points. But who can resist a retelling of the phantom of the opera, with a woman who can sing all the parts. And sing them all at once, no less. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Seawood | 12/22/2013

    " Another Witches, so automatically a favourite, although it does drag a little bit in places. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lianna | 11/29/2013

    " The witches characters are growing on me. Good mystery that I never 100% caught on to. On to the next one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anthea Strezze | 11/27/2013

    " Review to be added later. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ayesha | 11/22/2013

    " Part of the witches of discworld, but not one I've read more than once? twice? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ibby | 6/27/2012

    " great parody of "The Phantom of the Opera" "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Muff | 1/16/2011

    " The best of the witches books, so far. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Slipperbunny | 10/21/2010

    " I loved the madness of this book and the game between Death and Granny. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Richard | 2/4/2010

    " This novel is about two witches who travel to Ankh-Morpork where they investigate strange goings-on at the Opera House. Clearly one of Pratchett's best works, this book was funny and enjoyable. No loose ends, "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Zachary Stewart | 8/16/2009

    " Good, very fast read. It helps to know a good bit about musical theater. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joseph Gowen | 12/8/2008

    " I could include all of the Discworld novels on this list. I stumbled upon Pratchett's books in the library and have been hooked ever since. Great satire. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Derrick | 9/12/2008

    " First off, you have to be a fan of Phantom of the Opera to really get this book. Pratchett lifts the story wholesale, and proceeds to slaughter it with the witches of Lancre and one witch-in-training, who doesn't want to be a witch. Good stuff. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sally | 9/9/2006

    " Laugh out loud funny in places with a good dollop of social commentary . Not one of his very best but a good read nevertheless. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/11/2005

    " This is probably the best of the witches books to date in the series (I'm reading chronologically). Written during the heyday of Phantom of the Opera on the London stage, it's a fantastic spoof of the musical theater (or rather, theatre). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth | 10/11/2004

    " Maybe not one of Pratchett's best, but that is not giving him and his craft enough credit. Fucking hilarious. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Louise | 7/30/2004

    " As always, Terry is brilliant, but i didn't know enough about opera tll o enjoy this thoroughly. I think i missed a LOT of references and jokes. Will keep reading Terry till the end though! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tina | 1/29/2004

    " My absolute favorite discworld novel. "
