About the product Slava Se, a talented writer and author of the bestselling The Plumber, His Cat, Wife and Other Details, a popular blogger and the most famous plumber of Runet, presents a new book — “Little Opera”! There is a commotion in the occupied Dutch town of Dorholm — the leader is coming to them! The Ministry of Propaganda commissioned the conductor of the local orchestra to stage Wagner’s opera Valkyrie. But how to do it, when the musicians are left with a trombone, clarinet, oboe and 2 violas? You will not find singers in the daytime with fire, the wife-soloist is offended, and the opera is a matter of vital importance! You have to be content with what you have — brothel valkyries, bouncer actors, mafia producers. And what will come of it? «Little Opera» is a funny story about life in a Dutch town, where there is a place for Spanish passions and Italian mafiosi, Jewish musicians and German officers. And if Glory Se is somewhere slightly disingenuous, then only for the sake of a joke! Abstract Today, only a pessimist lives to the fullest. Because when we move to Mars, only stones will remain from food. The optimist wraps himself in a mask with his head. He believes that climate, economics, politics and microbes will come to their senses. As if they had nothing else to do, just come back to normal. I have written two films this year. One will be filmed in Russia, the other in Holland. So said one funny producer. Another producer, sad, advised me to make a book out of two films. So that one day, sitting underground in an armored bunker, there was something to read about the naive 20s, when people walked just in masks, not yet in spacesuits. And they visited the store often, every week, without burning out a kilometer-long quarantine zone in front of them. There is no doubt that everything will be fine. But buy the book better. She will be like an umbrella for you on a fine day, a guarantee that the rain will not collect.
