8-bit Regie

Even if no one guessed the correct opera on our most recent Regie quiz, Our Own Batty Masetto did the next best or perhaps even better thing by devising the silliest scenario.

We remain (apparently) in the exotic East for our next quiz, after the jump.

    3-Orest in his final ritual murder costume before he goes in and does the murderous deeds
