If you can’t get enough of Al Gore or his movie An Inconvenient Truth, you’re in luck. Giorgio Battistelli, a well know Italian composer and current artistic director of the Arena in Verona, is producing an opera based on the film in Milan’s famed opera house La Scala. The production is scheduled for 2011 to celebrate 150 years of Italian unification. Battistelli see’s the opera as a tragedy, he’s probably not the only one, and says that the story will be told through characters rather than a narrator. A movie, a book, and now an opera, I’m waiting for a slightly chubby Al Gore action figure.
