Inconvenient Truth to become an operaAs if a movie based on a PowerPoint presentation wasn't boring enough, now "An Inconvenient Truth" will put audiences to sleep via opera music.

The legendary La Scala opera house in Milan plans to do an opera version of Al Gore's documentary during its 2011 season. Italian composer Giorgio Battistelli hopes the opera will help people see the world's environmental predicament from a fresh point of view.

We hear Act 1, "Carbon Footprint, Walk on By", is going to be awesome.
