Opera lovers can now create their own mini opera online with Opera by You. The campaign is the  first opera created by an online community called Free Will in the internet, based on Italian Grazianos Gallo’s Free Will and the fight between heaven and hell. You can use opera singers, an 80 member choir and a symphony orchestra. The plot, music and visualisation are also up to you and the completed opera will be performed in a medieval castle at the Savonlinna Opera Festival 2012 in Finland.

This is a great chance for anyone interested in opera or the theatre to learn more about the process of creating a performance and behind the scenes. The most active members will also win a trip to the festival. Join the Opera by You online community on http://www.wreckamovie.com/operabyyou. There are also Twitter and Facebook accounts. The Wreck a Movie community group allows you to track the remaining tasks and to chat with other members. There is also a blog to provide additional information and tips on composing, visualisation, etc. It will be interesting to see the results of such a huge online collaborative composing project.
