Publisher's Summary

"I thought: opera, how hard can it be? Songs. Pretty girls dancing. Nice scenery. Lots of people handing over cash. Got to be better than the cut-throat world of yoghurt, I thought. Now, everywhere I go, there's...."Death, to be precise. And plenty of it. In unpleasant variations. This isn't real life. This isn't even cheese mongering. It's opera - where the music matters, and where an opera house is being terrorised by a man in evening dress with a white mask, lurking in the shadows, occasionally killing people, and, most worryingly, sending little notes, writing maniacal laughter with five exclamation marks. Opera can do that to a man. In such circumstances, life has obviously reached that desperate point where the wrong thing to do has to be the right thing to do.

Critic Reviews

"Cracking dialogue, compelling illogic, and unchained whimsy....Pratchett has a subject and a style that is very much his own." (Sunday Times)

A mystery in a mask

An easy listen, and entertaining, but the severe volume changes were distracting and very annoying.

Terry Pratchett is always good for a laugh!

I listened to this just after I listened to phantom of the opera so the parallels were fresh in my mind. Hilarious. Also Tony Robinson is fabulous.

really entertaining

This audio book is really good, Tony Robinson is the voice of the discworld..I love the tales of the ramtop witches and have been a pratchett fan for 20 years..own and have read every book..so the audio books can be a gamble as you have your own interpretation of the characters etc but Tony is brilliant and this audio book is a good adaptation.
