Ever wanted to be the back yard impresario of your neighborhood?  Are you a former well known opera company who has left your home to roam the streets of New York City and need productions on the cheap?  Did you ever want to stage a flash-mob opera and not have to design sets, costumes, etc.?  Ever dream of Las Vegas on the Hudson?  Well here is your opportunity.  The Companions Opera of Amsterdam is offering  9 lots on E-Bay, all complete productions from their stadium productions; that's right, wigs, columns, cod pieces, spears, swords, fire buckets, Swarovski crystal bedazzled jackets and jeans, even a tomb and a holy island, you got it, everything but the kitchen sink, all starting at a $1.00 introductory bid!

Peter Kroone, the Dutch opera producer is retiring and putting his productions up for sale.  Operas include: Carmen, Rigoletto, Turandot, Nabucco, Trovatore, Traviata, Cav/Pag and Aida.  There are some limitations, there is a reserve and it's cash-n carry, but could be great for a serious musically inclined University as well!
