Yep. You saw that headline correctly. The Walker Art Center in Minneapolis will be host to the Midwest Premier of “Tragedy on the Sea Nymph” a dog opera in three acts.

Written and directed by Elizabeth Cline, “Tragedy on the Sea Nymph” is a 10 minute silent film starring dogs who perform the romance and tragedy of clandestine lovers shipwrecked at sea. The film will be accompanied by five opera singers (I get to be the voice of a mermaid) and the Cedar String Quartet.

Dog lovers, share the trailer with all your friends. And mark your calendar now so you and your dog aren’t left standing in the dog park when you could be at the opera.
