Pinpointing where Marc Adamo went wrong in setting "Little Women" as an opera.

Pretty much as soon as he decided to base it on the Winona Ryder movie version of the story. So before any of the actual notes were written, then.

Most egregious wordplay: "Ours the hours". Gad.

Line that begged hardest for a snappy comeback: "Whitman was at our wedding." My guess is he got drunk and diddled the best man.
