Monday Morning Chuckle: Sing to Me Walt Disney!

Following a meeting of New York City Opera’s Board of Directors, Gerard Mortier, General Manager Designate today announced that City Opera is commissioning Philip Glass to compose a new opera, The Perfect American which imaginatively explores the life and career of Walt Disney. Based on the recent novel Der König von Amerika (translated into English as The Perfect American) by Peter Stephan Jungk, the opera, presented in collaboration with Improbable, is scheduled to open City Opera’s 2012-2013 season.

This could be a very interesting concept……… I remember doing several reports on Mr. Disney as a kid, and his biz life wasn’t all grandfatherly idealistic as one would have imagined.  But that just gives a bit of parallel & depth doesn’t it?  Don’t pay attention to the man behind the curtain?  Psssh – he’s far too interesting of a puzzle to work out 😉
