I thought: opera, how hard can it be? Songs. Pretty girls dancing. Nice scenery. Lots of people handing over cash. Got to be better than the cut-throat world of yoghurt, I thought. Now, everywhere I go, there's....

Death, to be precise. And plenty of it. In unpleasant variations. This isn't real life. This isn't even cheese mongering. It's opera - where the music matters, and where an opera house is being terrorised by a man in evening dress with a white mask, lurking in the shadows, occasionally killing people, and, most worryingly, sending little notes, writing maniacal laughter with five exclamation marks. Opera can do that to a man. In such circumstances, life has obviously reached that desperate point where the wrong thing to do has to be the right thing to do. Download and start listening now!

    " Good, solid, satire, with lots of amusing descriptions of opera. It features my favorite witches: Granny, and Mrs. Ogg. "

    " Not Pratchetts best work, but even middling Pratchett is still worth a read. "

    " Terry's deft parody of Phantom of the Opera -- and all things theatrical and musical -- may not be an absolute fave, but it's still an enjoyable time. I always love when Greebo has to assume his human guise, when Nanny gets into lascivious shenanigans, and when Granny gets to swan about like a duchess on undercover missions. Walter Plinge is adorable, the side character/story of Enrico Basillica (aka Henry Slugg) is a lot of fun, and Agnes (aka Perdita X. Dream) gets to shine on behalf of all larger girls with "great personalities". "

    " Mid 90s Terry Pratchett novel, in which Granny Weatherwax and Nanny Ogg get caught up the The Phantom Of the Opera, Discworld style! "
