Hmm. Okay then …

Philip Glass’s opera about Walt Disney is to get its UK premiere at the English National Opera (ENO) next year.

Acclaimed British baritone Christopher Purves has been cast as Disney, while soprano Janis Kelly will play the role of Disney’s studio nurse.

Cloud Atlas writer David Mitchell will see his latest libretto premiere, which features 3D film sequences, at the ENO in 2013.

He has collaborated with Dutch composer Michel van der Aa on Sunken Garden.

The opera is described as an “occult mystery film opera”.
