LONDON, ENGLAND-And so begins Twitterdämmerung, the new opera premiered at London’s Royal Opera House Saturday afternoon.

The libretto was created over three weeks by Royal Opera House Twitter followers, inspired by the party game Consequence, according to ROH spokesperson Sara Parsons, where one person writes a line to a story, folds the paper and hands it to the next person to write the following line. The result is then read aloud and hilarity ensues.
