Friday Canadian opera video: HipHopera

I just came across this and I think that it's a perfect Friday video: It's a "stealth" recording of last year's Hip Hopera at the Four Seasons Centre in Toronto, part of their free lunch time series and was Canadian composed and performed. It's definitely game changing in terms of what we think of as opera. It's anything but traditional and is very, very cool. Thoughts?
