Al Gore's Inconvenient Truth To Be Staged As Opera

We hope it's not a tragic one where all the main characters die in the end: The Associated Press is reporting that Al Gore's Inconvenient Truth is going to be staged as an opera. From lecture halls to film, okay we get it. From film to books, a natural transition. But opera?

According to AP, the Italian composer Giorgio Battistelli has been commissioned to produce an opera on Gore's international multiformat hit, for the 2011 season at the Milan opera house, La Scala.

We wonder if Gore will be cast in a part. Any ideas?
