Heavy Metal Opera

Trust Norway to actually do this, and get it right.

The world's first heavy-metal opera premiered today. "Faust - Metal Opera" mixed music from Charles Francois Gounod's 1859 opera based on the legend of the philosopher who sells his soul to the devil with a heavy metal theme composed by a local band called Pica Fierce.

My fave line of the article? After getting a positive review from a 27 year old metal fan (no surprise there)... "It was dead cool," Torun Werswick, 65, agreed. "I just thought it was fabulous!" 65, and enjoyed a heavy metal opera. How many people of retirement age do you think you can find that would say the same thing?
