Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth To Be Turned Into An Opera

Right now, I’m attempting to figure out how to rhyme Global Warming with carbon emissions.

In Italian.

It takes serious imagination to contemplate that task, something newly assigned to Italian composer Giorgio Battistelli. He’s been commissioned to create an opera based on Al Gore’s 2006 hit documentary An Inconvenient Truth for the 2011 season at the Milan Opera House. 

I’m speechless. Thankfully, one commenter over on the Huffington Post offered this piece of advice, 

“No, I don’t think it should be in the style of Philip Glass. No, it should be in the style of Miles Davis, Bitches Brew or Jack Johnson, heavy guitar and trumpet jabs for all of us who can’t see the obvious inconvenient truth that human consumption is too much for the planet to handle, that we have made life on this planet, as the Hopi call it, “Koyaanisqatsi ” – out of balance (f***ed up) – but that IS a Philip Glass score.”

Well said.
