#OperaPlot 2011 -- The Denouement

The #OperaPlot contest is over for this year, and as always, competition was stiff. As you may recall, the idea was to give -- in a humorous fashion -- the plot of an opera using only the 140-character limit allowed on Twitter (actually, the count was less because each entry had to include the hashtag #operaplot).

Since a few of the winning tweets are NSFW, I'll just point to the complete list of winning entries. There were five winners, five runners-up, and additional prizes for the best pop culture reference, best song parody, best modern opera plot, and even best #OperaPlot fan art!

So how did I do? Well, I was one of the runners-up again this year with the following entry:

Ramades and Aida get in on the ground floor of a pyramid scheme. #operaplot  [Aïda]

Which, considering how many thousands of entries were submitted from all over the world, I think is quite an honor!

I'm already thinking about possible entries for next year. How about you?
