Summary: Fry unable to perform opera, doesn't get paid by Hedonismbot but gets Leela anyway...
BUT, just because Fry coudln't perform the opera doesn't mean that someone else could! He wrote the music for it, and it appeared to be a success until Beelezebot turned up, so all they would have to do is get someone else to perform the holophoner part while Fry becomes rich from royalities.

I don't think that Fry would want anyone else perfoming his opera.

Besides, not many people can play the holophoner, and most of them aren't very good at it.

1)You misspelled Fry's name in the thread title.  Doh!

2)We already have a couple of threads discussing the opera.

3)Fry lost his ability to play the holophoner about 60 seconds from the end of the final episode.

If you want the final minute of the show to be an emotional climax between Fry and Leela, press 1.

If you want the final minute of the show to focus on Hedenismbot finding a replacement for Fry, press 2.


*Everybody presses 1*

You have pressed 2.

No I didn't!

I'm almost positive you did!

harsh words from a harsh man.
i agree slightly with everyone else, tho i dont believe the opera was a hit, i got the drift that it was poorly done or something in the audiences opinion. the acting, how people just said how they felt...that angers me.

It was seen as the 'Greatest Opera of All Time' in the interval though. And it seemed to be well received until after the part where the Robot Devil drops in.
 Nevermind, it will probably just be another unsolved mystery like where did all of Fry and Bender's money go after 'the Problem With Popplers'.

"Beelezebot"

Genius!

Anyway...  I doubt that Fry really cared about the money.  He had other things in mind.  Wink wink nudge nudge.

I was more impressed by the time when he played when he had worms, couldn't he have played something like that at the opera? rather than people acting the roles?

That equals truth.  Fry's opera sucked until the Robot Devil intervened.

Don't forget it was Fry who wrote that opera. Sure he has Beelzebots hands, but he's still a bit immature and naturally place him and his friends in a heroic light, particular Leela the love of his life.

Since Fry don't know much about writing and character devloment he just have his characters express what they feel. And that makes me feel angry.

I don't mean in sucked in THAT sense.  I mean it sucked as in it was one of the weaker aspects of the episode.

The holophoner seems to me to be a very personal instrument, which is why there are only a few holophoner players; maybe the holophoner reads the thoughts and emotions of the player, and turns them into images, so two people playing the same piece of holophoner music wouldn't get exactly the same images. If Fry let someone who didn't idolise Leela play his opera, then it could change beyond all recognition.

The keys of the holophoner could be a way to find the images in the player's mind, so if the music isn't played perfectly then the images are either altered or sub-standard. If the holophoner reads emotions, then it could be a vicious circle; Fry messes up "The Grumpy Snail," gets fustrated, and his fustration is picked up by the holophoner and warps the images into Snailzilla. When he plays the end of the opera just for Leela, his mind is clear, so the images aren't warped, his sub-standard playing just gives sub-standard quality.

...Or it could just be a very advanced version of a clarinet that anyone can play if they have practice (like the children) but no one has the time or patience to learn to play it.
