Ach, was für ein verwirrtes Gewebe weben wir

I’m sure that was horrible German…don’t ask for my pehperz!

Anyway, salve you xkcd fans might remember the brilliant Movie Timelines (for others of you here’s a little taste, approved but you should check out the whole thing, visit srsly)

Well, wouldn’t you know it, some brilliant mind came up with a web tool to make your own! It’s a little clunky but it gets the job done quite nicely….of course I knew I needed to use it to make the plot of some opera even harder to grasp! I chose Zauberflöte because a) I know it pretty well, b) it’s already confusing as hell and would make a nice convoluted graph, and c) ok it was really either that or Peter Grimes (the two operas with which I have been, at one time or another, the most obsessed with) and I don’t think I’m emotionally ready to reenter the world of Grimes to the degree that I would have to….anywho, here’s a little sample to tickle your fancy, but please to click to embiggen and see the whole thing in its curvaceous glory.

I’m sure I left out a few things and didn’t elucidate other things enough, but pretty good for a first try, eh?
