Ahab Goes to the Opera

Here is a great story about a new opera based on Melville's Moby Dick that is being mounted by the Dallas Opera. The opera will not include the book's signature opening line, "Call me Ishmael," but does draw about half of its dialogue from the book. Would you want to see an opera based on Moby Dick?

Want to read Moby Dick? Check it out for free at Project Gutenberg.
