Stealth Opera

Well, here’s a videogame I would play. It’s even got The Beggar’s Opera in it!

The game’s designer, Alex Hutchinson, may be one of us, if we can judge by this:

Hutchinson admits to a perverse glee, too, at jamming opera—what he calls the most maligned art form—into one of gaming’s most mainstream franchises. “I love the idea of making 10 million kids listen to an opera for half an hour. This is stealth history, the songs people are singing, the jobs they’re doing around you, it’s all just happening. You’re not singing in that opera, you’re not part of the line infantry, but you see it, it surrounds you,” he says.
