The audience at the opera watches a feather float slowly down and spiral into the mouth of the lead soprano, and she chokes to death.

I remember reading this sometime in the last decade, but don't remember when or where. I don't have any more information. I've searched Google but can't find anything.

    I don't understand what you are looking for: an opera in which this happens or a story where people see this happening during a performance? I assume it's the latter, but I would appreciate it if this could be made more explicit. If it isn't from an opera, could you add more details about the story? E.g. length (short story or novel), the language in which you read it, when you read it (terminus ante quem). – Tsundoku Sep 10 at 14:47
  • I'm trying not to be snippy, but why do people always feel the need to reply when they have literally nothing to add? – Kevin Ryan Sep 11 at 16:47
  • It's all in the question. "I don't have any more information". Your answer is textbook Stackexchange. – Kevin Ryan Sep 12 at 20:04
