Opera in Three Acts

L’Obama, ossia L’Avvento del Messia

James Calvert came up with this brilliant opera idea - here's a link to the Classical Music and Opera Forum where he first published the story in September 2008.

Act One opens at La Piazza del Cattedrale di Washington on the day after the USA elections...

Thank you Polly Mason, for bringing this to my attention. Enjoy!

This was brilliant! I read the first page or two in rehearsal, found the rest online, and laughed myself to sleep over it!

[still giggling at "Sara Palino's" catchphrase: "Può vedere Russia dalla mia casa”]

Hehehe.
