A Touch Obscure

When one hears word about a performance of a C.S. Lewis work adapted as an opera, first thoughts run to the Chronicles of Narnia, perhaps, or maybe one of the theological allegories like The Great Divorce. I would not have guessed Perelandra.

Till We Have Faces would be a better opera.

But really, I can't imagine a old-school Anglican curmudgeon like Lewis going for an opera of any of his books. Yuck.

Yeah, which is why it's strange to see that he was involved in making it!

Ok, as I read more, it's clear it's not going to be an Andrew Lloyd Weber schmaltz-fest, which is what I assumed at first.

But still.
