The Best Opera-Related Thing You'll See All Day


So Cory Cullinan, AKA Doctor Noize, has a Kickstarter project to raise money to record "Phineas McBoof Crashes the Symphony," which is a live show Cullinan is presenting to young audiences -- think Prokofiev's "Peter and the Wolf" for the 21st century. 

Cullinan's got a little more than two weeks to raise money for the project, and I heartily encourage you to read my interview with him about the project over on the Bake Sale section of the site

But even if you don't do that -- and with comments like "Kids want to reach and challenge themselves to master Big Things.  To reach is the purest state of joy," you definitely should -- at least take 5 minutes or so and watch this video of a Phineas McBoof mini-opera.  It made me happy.  It's basically an advertisement (or at least proof-of-concept), but such an effective one.
