“Where are the Goddamned Operas?”

Posted: March 16, 2013 by Mary Lin in Uncategorized

 Bill McKibben asked in a 2005 Grist essay on Climate Change: “Where are the books? The poems? The plays? The goddamn operas?” http://grist.org/article/mckibben-imagine/

Bill McKibben needs to know about our goddamned opera. It’s an irresistible combination of smart, funny, sexy, and messagey – and, as far as we know, it’s the first full-on opera about climate change. I personally think that a visit to world heads of state by a pod of sexy steampunk mermaid sirens with a message about climate change might actually get the message across.  Bill, if you’re reading this, we have a pair of tickets set aside just for you. See you at the show.
