The worlds first twitter opera?

A twitter duel between Estonia's president and economist Paul Krugman is the theme of the new opera Culpa Nostra. The Young Estonian composer Eugene Birman has composed what is perhaps the World’s first "Twitter opera".

Sinfonietta Riga performed the new piece at a spectacular concert emphasizing the theme by using all sorts of social media to reach the audience beforehand and after.

The concert, also including other pieces of music, focused on a younger audience than the average Latvian concert attender, and this was reflected in the location as well. The concert took place at "the D Fab" (Dizaina Fabrika) an industrial Building previously used for Building jet engines during the Soviet area - but now a centre of creative industries and events.
