Boing Boing posted an interesting article today about a theater company in the UK that plans to produce an opera about the last days of Walt Disney. Should be on their June 2013 line-up.
The story follows cartoonist Wilhelm Dantine, who worked for Disney in the 1950s. The production does not have the rights to use Disney’s most famous characters, but it is likely to find a way to reference them. Berry said: “Glass is very interested in the impact that a personality of that order has on wider culture."
