Those fortunate enough to be in the vicinity of New York City are in for a treat: this Saturday (August 17), video game and music fans will be treated to a performance of The Mario Opera, created by singer-songwriter/YouTube celebrity Jonathan Mann. Those not so fortunate can still enjoy the music, which is available for purchase through iTunes.
Here’s the teaser trailer:
Tickets appear to still be available, and it’s a one-night engagement (so far, at least). Polygon reports that this weekend’s showing is in fact a revival; the opera was last performed eight years ago. That’s Disney-vault levels of scarcity, folks — better nab those tickets while you can!
