The Fly: The Opera

AMC’s Monsterfest Blog is reporting that David Cronenberg and Howard Shore have adapted the 1986 horror classic The Fly into an opera. For real.

And this ain’t just talk–the thing is actually on the Los Angeles Opera’s schedule, and will be conducted by Pl├ícido Domingo. It’ll run for six performances only, beginning in September.

Hey–if Evil Dead the Musical worked so well, why not The Fly the Opera? I am seriously considering planning a trip to LA around this.
