Philip Glass Puts Walt Disney In His Sights

glass2.jpgPhilip Glass will compose an opera based on the last few months of the life of Walt Disney, Variety says.waltdisney.jpg

The piece, which is commissioned by the New York City Opera, will be performed in collaboration with Britain’s Improbable Theater Group.

As is typical with Glass with films like “Koyaanisqatsi,” it will take an offbeat approach to the Disney life, telling it though the eyes of a fictional Austrian cartoonist who worked for him. It will be based on Peter Stephan Jungk’s German-language novel “The Perfect American.”

Hard to say whether Mickey will be making an appearance.
