    Opera based on Walt's last days.

    Another interesting read about an opera by Phillip Glass about the last days of Walt Disney. In the last act, Mr. Lincoln in the Disneyland Opera House gets into an argument with Walt regarding race.

    Might be interesting to see if it comes to LA, no way it comes to Sacramento

    Sure takes a lot of liberty. Says Walt goes to DL to repair Mr Lincoln because it has been attacking members of the audience.How can that be? Says Lincoln also attacks Walt. Sounds a little to far fetched. Not worth my money to see.

    This sounds horrible.

My voice shall be heard from this wilderness and I shall be delivered from this fetid and festering sewer."

    Sounds like "Walt meets Hitchhiker's Guide meets Slaughterhouse-Five."

    Valerie Perrine as Mary Poppins, anyone?

    One of the best. I'd be more interested in listening to his music. Give me Glass any day. He's even better live.

    Sure, he's a very highly respected and accomplished composer, but some of his ideas are a little.....weird.

    And that's why he's so great.
