Those wacky Twits!

Over on Twitter, the hashtag of the day has been #operacarols. I present for your enjoyment a subjective collection of some of the best. (I note they're not all carols--tirade about the proper use of that word to follow.)

* Gesu Bambino Caro
* You're a Mean One, Mr. Grimes
* Carol of the Bellinis
* A Spotless Rosenkavalier
* Angels from the Realms of Gloriana
* I Saw Mimì Kissing Santa Claus
* Ba-Lulu-low
* Frosty the Snow-Manon
* Faust-y the Snowman
* Freischütz the Snowman
* Good King Gudunov
* Here We Come A-Walküring
* Venite Toreadoramus
* Bring a Torch, Jeanette, Papagena (also Bring a Torch, Jeanette, Arabella)
* We Three Kings of Orpheus Are
* Una Voce Poco Fa-la-la-la-la
* Chestnuts Roasting in the Underworld
* Idomeneo Look A Lot Like Christmas
* The Sleigh Ride of the Valkyries
* Rodolfo the Rednosed Reindeer
* God Rest Ye Merry, Wives of Windsor

And mixed in with the lot were some new operas:

* Yule Trovatore
* Cosi fan Fruttecake
* The Magic Fruitcake
* Frost-staff
* I Puritanenbaum
* The Cunning Little Blitzen
