(Newser) – England’s world-famous Royal Opera House is getting with the times by launching the world’s first Twitter libretto, the Independent reports. Participants send lyrical tweets to @youropera, which will be set to familiar and original opera music in The Twitter Opera next month. Some critics worry it cheapens the art form, but an Opera House rep calls it the “perfect way for everyone to become involved.”
