look up any word, like lemonparty:
A director's device to add drama to an opera. Particularly useful in death scenes. Perfected by Plácido Domingo; Rolando Villazón is an expert. Test of how good a tenor really is.

First found on blogs and usenet, it is now used by the mainstream media.
This opera contained the requisite amount of tenorial rolling on the ground and furniture abuse
