Haven't bought into Gore's Inconvenient Truth yet? How about hearing it via a new medium--opera!

MILAN, Italy - 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.

I heard about this earlier. I'm still in the "seriously?" phase.

What would be amusing is if the newer predictions for a rapid Northern Hemisphere temperature plunge come true and this "work" premieres in bone-cracking cold weather.
