An Inconvenient Truth: the opera?


I can’t imagine how La Scala intends to stage An Inconvenient Truth:

La Scala officials say the Italian composer Giorgio Battistelli has been commissioned to produce an opera on the international multiformat hit for the 2011 season at the Milan opera house. The composer is currently artistic director of the Arena in Verona.

After all, the movie was basically an extended PowerPoint presentation. Are they going to put Al Gore’s slides up where the libretto usually goes? And what’s the plot?
