    As I reacted on Twitter when I saw Sydney Padua @sydneypadua announcing
    this opera adaption of her graphic novel "The Thrilling Adventures
    of Lovelace and Babbage":

    The late Robert Dewar, of #AdaProgramming language fame, would have
    loved this! For some history, look for "The Maiden and the Mandate"
    in https://ada-europe.org/archive/auj/auj-41-1-withcovers.pdf and https://adacore.com/adacore25...

    Those were hilariously funny fully staged musical performances at
    several ACM SIGAda and Ada-Europe conferences, which I was lucky
    enough to attend. It would be great if AdaCore could put online
    one of the video recordings that were made at the time.
