I am a big opera lover, but think I will be skipping this one. It was actually commissioned by The Royal Opera House in London in 2011, and now is making its way to us, and will be on at BAM from September 18th to 28th.
One should not be surprised however, because the same team brought you "Jerry Springer: The Opera" in 2003.
