Indeed it is, but do you think you can sum up Offenbach’s Fantasio in 140 characters?  Whoever explains it best will win two top price seats to the performance at Royal Festival Hall on 15 December and the runner-up will bag a copy of the OAE and Glyndebourne’s La Cenerentola (Cinderella) double disc set.

Post your answers below or tweet @theoae

Get your answers in by Friday 13 December and we’ll announce the winners shortly after.
