The Gonzales Cantata

If I were going to be in Philadelphia this weekend I'd head over to the Live Arts Festival & Philly Fringe to take in what looks to be an amazing new short opera: The Gonzales Cantata by Melissa Dunphy. The libretto is taken entirely from transcripts of Senate Judiciary Committee hearings at which Bush Attorney General Alberto Gonzales testified. And the role of Gonzales is sung by a woman. This looks hot.
