I used to run a comedy songwriting night called Song Sale. Audience members could commission songs on any topic. Someone wanted an opera about root vegetables, and eventually I had the chance to arrange it for and perform it with a full symphony orchestra.
This song also exists in a version for baritone and piano. The range of the vocal part is insane, by the way.
This work is suitable for "singers who have no job prospects in opera and no sense of shame and über-confident baritones with extraordinary vocal ranges. Oh, and a decent school orchestra could do the accompaniment." — Robbie Ellis
