I've had my Macbook Pro for about two years now, and have never had any battery issues. Today, out of nowhere, the capacity went from about 91% to 20%. What on earth is going on? Calibrating the battery didn't accomplish anything.

You may be a candidate for an SMC reset Link - if not and it shows no sign of charging - perhaps a trip to the Apple store is in your near future.
