The Opera House, Ankh-Morpork, is 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. But Granny Weatherwax, Discworld's most famous witch, is in the audience. And she doesn't hold with that sort of thing.
So there's going to be trouble (but nevertheless a good evening's entertainment, with murderous performances you can really hum).

"Cracking dialogue, compelling illogic, and unchained whimsy....Pratchett has a subject and a style that is very much his own." (Sunday Times)
Funny, Clever, Entertaining
I typically have enjoyed Nigel Planers reading of the Discworld novels, this performance does not disappoint!
Laughed allowed on many occasions!
Shorten it by 100 minutes and bring in more of the regular Diskworld characters
No , but I will avoiid Terry Pratchett's other novels involving the witches
I kept hearing Neil from "The Young Ones" moaning through the characters
No way too long to support a totally predicable plot. I actualy got bored and switched to other audio books several times before I forced myself to finish this work
diskworld always should have appearnces , even cameos, by Lord Vetinari, Sam Vines and the Guards, CMOT Dibbler et al. and use less predicatble plagarised plots.
