Fort Worth opera’s the hottest ticket in town

They're having an opera festival in Fort Worth, Texas. Clear your calendar and saddle up for the show! But first, check out this low-budget promo from Relish Studio. The agency claims: "Production costs were held to under $10K." Well—yeah, duh, obviously. Note how the effects kick in and flames engulf Don Giovanni at the end—a reminder, perhaps, that sitting through an opera in the Lone Star State is probably a lot like roasting in hell. I say that without ever having visited Texas or seen an opera. I do, however, sing arias all day at work. Loudly. Dressed as the Serra Honda Man. I'm all about culture! Won't somebody help me?
