Gore Going to the Opera

Al Gore has had no shortage of accolades since his rebirth as front man for the environment, but, true to form, Italy’s La Scala opera house is determined to take “An Inconvenient Truth” over the top. An opera of the award-winning book and movie is set to premiere in 2011, and because it’s hard to make a character out of carbon emissions, it’s very possible the production will center on a certain former vice president.

Homeland Security Meets Reality TV

If you thought reality TV was only for wannabe warblers, petulant teens and bug-eating fetishists, guess again.

Sharon Stone’s Quake Comment Causes Uproar in China

Jazz Fest ‘08: Homecoming on Muddy Ground

It’s easy in New Orleans these days to read meaning and purpose into every lyric or song choice—was Sheryl Crow commenting on the housing crisis by covering “Gimme Shelter,” or was she just doing a Stones tune?

‘Che’ Goes to Cannes

One of the most hotly anticipated contenders at this year’s Cannes Film Festival is “Che,” Steven Soderbergh’s lengthy biopic of iconic Argentine revolutionary Che Guevara, featuring Benicio del Toro in the title role.
