Confluence Highlights, Part 2: Super Smash Opera‚Äč!

I have to admit, I went into this a bit dubious. The demo recordings on their web page are, by the cast's own admission, a bit rough, but then I saw it live and enjoyed it 1000 times more than I expected to.

It's basically a show entirely made up of nintendo-related parodies of classic arias performed by people who can actually sing (Zelda does the fraggin' Queen of the Night aria, a ridiculously showy and challenging soprano piece, and nails it, for example). If that doesn't convince you it's worth your time, then it may just not be your thing.

If you want a taste, I haven't watched all of it, but there is video of an earlier performance from MagFest up on YouTube. Really, though, if you get a chance to see them live, this is absolutely a thing that you should do.
