Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Debacle is a synonym... btw ;P Fiasco comes from the Italian word for flask/bottle and it's use in the Italian phrase "to make a bottle" meaning to fail because of unknown origin. (I don't know, ask the Italians ;) More precisely, it means to fail with a result of disgrace or public contempt. So a better opposite might be TRIUMPH, which can mean an exultation (public praising) due to victory. Victory however, in essence, applies to conflict which isn't needed for a fiasco. Also, TRIUMPH does not need to be (and most often isn't) of unknown origin. So MIRACLE would fit that sense of unknown origin, and applicability to anything. But, miracle does not need to cause public praise  so take your pick. Your true opposite should be something to do with good LUCK, but an event arising out of that luck which ends with public praise.
