'Looking Glass' parody, pt 4
Through the (abridged) Looking Glass
(and what malice was found there)
Part IV

OR
Surely you can come up with your own alternate title by now!
It's not like anyone pays any attention to them, anyway.
I mean, how many people go around calling
Così fan tutte by its – oh wait . . . never mind
Now with 30% more wholegrain fibre.

Alice is curled in a foetal position behind Humpty Dumpty's wall, muttering almost incoherently to herself.
ALICE: It all makes perfect sense now . . . this Looking Glass Land, it's really Silent Hill . . . and Humpty Dumpty was my own personal Pyramid Head . . . no wonder he makes everyone in Tom Waits' Alice look like absolute cream puffs . . . and this wall looks like the one that Laura was sitting on; I shouldn't be surprised if Humpty ate her . . . and now I'll probably run into Eddie . . .
READERS: Include all the inane Silent Hill references you want, it won't disguise the fact t

Part III

OR
Opera on the verge of a nervous breakdown
I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together.

Alice cautiously peers out from her hiding spot.
ALICE: Looks as if that monstrous crow has moved on . . . suppose I should follow suit . . .
Alice emerges from the trees and enters:
SCENE: The FIFTH SQUARE, which is composed of ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.
SET DESIGNER:
I was going for a minimalistic look; no need to get snippy!
ALICE: Now that I think about it, if the Red King hadn’t woken up, there could have been some real gravity to the Tweedles’ threat, especially given the King’s resemblance to –
The scene suddenly GRINDS TO A COMPLETE HALT as INVERTED-JABBERWOCKY is hit with a SUDDEN REALISATION:
INVERTED-JABBERWOCKY: Oh, damn!  I just realised I completely forgot to mention the Tweedles’ battle attir

Part II

OR
Alice: Cultural learnings of Looking Glass Land for make benefit glorious city of Melbourne
In which Inverted-Jabberwocky will attempt to cram in as many references to the city of Melbourne as possible.

Alice steps into the second square and finds herself at . . .
SCENE: A TRAIN STATION packed with DISGRUNTLED COMMUTERS in the thick of complaining about Looking Glass Land’s apparently atrocious public transport system.
DISGRUNTLED COMMUTER 1:
So I says to him, I says, “Let’s move to Wonderland – at least they have a halfway-decent public transport system!”  “Oh, no,” he says.  “That’d be most unpatriotic!” he says.
DISGRUNTLED COMMUTER 2: Well, I for one’d much rather be unpatriotic than stuck here waiting two hours for a bloody train that ought to be coming ever

''Looking Glass'' parody, pt 1
Through the (abridged) Looking Glass
(and what malice was found there)
Part I

An operatic parody in one act.
SCENE: The MERLYN THEATRE at the C.U.B. MALTHOUSE, which is Australian for “CONVERTED BREWERY WITH SOME STAGES AND A FEW ROWS OF SEATS THROWN IN”.

Enter the AUDIENCE, the majority of who are SEVENTEEN-YEAR-OLD THEATRE STUDIES STUDENTS, who will analyse to death every single minute aspect of the opera in an attempt to find symbolism of some kind (regardless of whether or not it actually exists).  Why they are doing such an analysis in Theatre Studies and not English is anyone’s guess.
The remainder of the audience occupies themselves by reading their PROGRAMS, which sadly neglect to mention that unless the audience has read Through the Looking-Glass and what Alice found there, The Annotated Alice, various reviews of the opera and cast member interviews AND are aware of certain aspects of the lives of both CHARLES

(And I hereby promise that our gallery will have more activity next year ^^;)

Peace, love and opera! :holly:

I'm a BIG fan of traditional productions, but if they HAVE to modernize it, I agree that this is what should be done. Now all we have to do is get this video to Jonas Kaufmann *swoon* and the ppl @ Bayreuth, since they obviously won't put his handsomeness to use as the perfect knight in shining armor. lol

That's great!

The roleplay itself is actually finished, bt I'm the process of finishing off the parody, so you'll be able to follow along with that :D
