THE SHOW MUST GO ON, AS MURDER, MUSIC AND MAYHEM RUN RIOT IN THE NIGHT...The Opera House, Ankh-Morpork...A huge, rambling building, where innocent young sopranos are lured to their destiny by a strangely familiar evil mastermind in a hideously deformed evening dress...At least, he hopes so.

Review by MrsLee
A wonderful homage to Phantom of the Opera and Andrew Lloyd Webber. Granny Weatherwax and Nanny Og must go to Ankh Morepork because they see dire things in a teacup in store for Agnes/Perditta X Nitt. Of course they are compassionate women, but their agenda reaches further than helping Agnes, they want her to make a threesome of witches with them. When they arrive, they find more than the drama of the opera in store for them. A tangled web of story lines and characters await their skills.Pratchett always manages to to keep the idea of magic a mystery. Is it special skills, tricks or something other? Just when you think you have it figured out, the story twists a bit and leaves you pondering. The relationship between Nanny and Granny is something special to behold. This story will certainly be reread, it combines so much that I love.
