Gaddafi the opera coming to ENO

ENO is to open it's doors to the Asian Dub Foundation (ADF), an ethno-punk band from London. In a move which is seen either as a radical shake up of stuffy operatic conventions, or as a desperate attempt to attract a new audience, ADF are planning a work based on the life and times of Libyan leader Colonel Gadaffi.

That aside, the 2005 season refocusses the company on English and English-language opera, with works by Britten, Vaughan Williams, as well a premiere of Irish composer Gerald Barry's The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant.
