Inconvenient Truth – The Opera – Inconvenient, Elitist, And No Doubt Expensive

inconvienttruth opera Inconvenient Truth   The Opera   Inconvenient,  Elitist, And No Doubt Expensive

There’s nothing like reaching the common man through the medium of…opera. Yeah right, all that black tie, high ticket prices and knowledge of Italian makes it a real crowd pleaser.

Well sound idea or not, the Associated Press reports that Italian composer Giorgio Battistelli has been assigned the task of turning Gore’s 2006 hit documentary into a 2011 Milan Opera House, full house. The composer is currently artistic director of Verona’s Arena.

I don’t know about you, but to me this sounds like a very bad idea. Isn’t it the anti Live Earth? While Gore’s last (successful) foray into the musical arena reached an estimated 2 billion people, the opera would reach at most a couple of hundred per night. Although part of me is curious to see how this event will be pulled off (who will play Gore?) — sadly like the rest of the world’s six billion without season tickets to the Milan Opera House, we’ll never find out.
