Would You Watch an Opera That Incorporates 9/11, Naked Cast?

Here's a story that involves Germany, Italian opera, September 11th, and Mickey Mouse masks . . . oh, and naked people. Mix it all together and what do you get? — a shocking new production of Giuseppe Verdi's un ballo in maschera (A Masked Ball).

The Austrian director Johann Kresnik, plans on staging a populist critique of modern American society, aimed at showing up the disparities between rich and poor.

Telegraph quotes Kresnik:

"It will be a different, a provocative masked ball on the ruins of the World Trade Center. The naked stand for people without means, the victims of capitalism, the underclass, who don’t have anything anymore."

Would you see this anticapitalist opera of naked singers, even if you didn't agree with its message?
