OMG! La Scala to stage Gore's 'Inconvenient Truth' as opera!!!
7 hours ago

MILAN, Italy (AP) First it was the film and the book. Now the next stop for Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth" is opera.

La Scala officials say the Italian composer Giorgio Battistelli has been commissioned to produce an opera on the international multiformat hit for the 2011 season at the Milan opera house. The composer is currently artistic director of the Arena in Verona.

La Scala also announced Thursday that Daniele Gatti will conduct next season's gala premiere of Verdi's "Don Carlo" on Dec. 7.

1. What a year he has had...
Other than leading the country, I can't think of any other kudos we could give the man.

I look forward to the opera. I hope Placido sings the lead. lol.
