The Fly: The Opera


The Los Angeles Opera has staged The Fly, an operatic re-imagination of David Cronenberg's incredible 1986 film. Indeed, the opera was directed by Cronenberg himself and features original music by Howard Shore (Lord of the Rings) who also composed the film's soundtrack. Placido Domingo conducts. As a huge fan of Cronenberg's films, I hope I have the opportunity to see his work in this medium. The opera's Web site is rich with video and photos including set designs and production sketches.
