Dust off your organic formal wear and your vintage opera glasses. An Inconvenient Truth is about to become an opera. Italian composer Giorgio Battistelli has been commissioned to produce the opera based on Al Gore's hit documentary. The stage production is scheduled for the 2011 season at the Milan opera house.
For more insight into An Inconvenient Truth , read Sierra magazine's 2006 interview with Al Gore (no word yet on whether he'll give us a repeat performance when the opera comes out).
