Maskerade

Maskerade (Discworld, #18) - Terry Pratchett Terry Pratchett takes on the opera.They are missing a witch in Lancre, now Magrat is queen, she's not witching any more, leaving Granny and Nanny in a coven of two - and it just doesn't work. So Nanny decides to recruit a new witch in the shape of Agnes Nitt. Only Agnes (who decides that Perdita is far more interesting name and has a far more interesting life) has decided to try her hand at something else and has left Lancre to seek her future in the Opera in Ankh Morpork. At the same time some post arrives relating to Nanny's recently published cookery book - and this is the excuse needed to get Granny on the road to Ankh. All sorts of dramatic interludes follow, referencing musicals and operas the world over. There is lots of singing in foreign languages, a ghost, a mask, and a large chandelier that hangs ominously above the theatre...
