Remember how I postulated about Night of the Living Dead: The Opera? I had this idea about the living singing in Italian, the dead in German (with lots of basso profundo) and so forth. Well, turns out some version of it has already been done. Damn!
Squonk Opera did it for City Theatre in Pittsburgh back in 1995…so we were told by one of Squonk’s head burritos, Steve O’Hearn. You can go check out their site here with the info on the Dead Opera here (along with a few shots of the stage in action) here. And Papa Romero and the stars of the film came out to see it.
Sadly, though, there’s no video of the performance. Double damn! Somebody really needs to do a revival. I’m just saying.
