Operation Opera is the 50th episode of Angry Birds Toons.
One day, Matilda is guarding the eggs and singing to a rose. While she is doing this, Foreman Pig watches her and hatches a plan to steal the eggs. Matilda then hears someone singing along with her, and she sees that it is a very handsome male white bird! However, inside the bird is a tenor pig with sheet music who is doing the singing and Foreman Pig operating the bird's mouth so it can speak. Matilda is awed and sings along with the opera bird, and it is the perfect opportunity for three pigs hiding behind a bush to make their move and steal the eggs.
After a while, the opera bird leaves and Matilda goes back to the nest, forcing the pigs to hide behind the bush again. Then, the opera bird comes back and whisks Matilda into the fields. While there, they continue to sing and spin around in circles. They spin around so fast that they create a donut-shaped hole in the ground and set it on fire! Again, Matilda returns to the nest and the opera bird leaves.
Later, the opera bird arrives again and takes Matilda to the top of a fake tower. There is a pig orchestra behind the tower, and some pigs are dressed as trees and two do a romantic dance. The opera bird sings a beautiful love song for Matilda and the orchestra plays along with him. By this time, the tenor pig has sung so much that he passes out! This leaves Foreman Pig to do the singing, and his voice is deeper than the tenor pig. As a result, the opera bird's voice changes, and Matilda knows something's up. She goes back to the nest area and destroys the opera bird, revealing the tenor pig and Foreman Pig. Just when Matilda is about to attack, she has an idea.
She makes the tenor pig sing and Foreman Pig dress up as a Viking lady and sing along. Matilda watches along with the three pigs who were trying to steal the eggs.
Matilda meets a handsome Pavarotti Bird and is entranced by his singing and dancing. But she doesn't know it's a false bird, and in fact Foreman Pig and Tenor Pig are hiding inside!
