The Metropolitan Opera has reportedly commissioned a new opera from Osvaldo Golijov, a composer whose work I usually like. Apparently it’s going to be about the “relationship between science and religion.”
That could be interesting. On the other hand, I suspect it’s most likely to to resolve into some pap about ultimate harmony. It won’t be the first time I’ll have to listen to music I like while ignoring the words. (It helps if the words are in Latin or some other language I don’t speak.)
