Der MeisterGonzo

In all the rush of news on health care reform and bitten fingers today, I’d missed the news that an original Opera has been composed based on the transcripts of the Alberto Gonzales hearings from the US Attorney Scandal.

The “Gonzales Cantata” will be performed for the first time this weekend in Philadelphia. More details here — with preview video.

“I see Gonzales as a tragic figure who’s also simultaneously irredeemable,” says the composer.
