FH451: The Rock Opera!

Many know that Ray Bradbury worked with composers to create a musical stage production of FAHRENHEIT 451. However, there was also a multimedia rock opera created, in Italy, from Ray's novel. It utilized live performances, background screen projection, and modern rock music. Among the songs incorporated into the work were Tears for Fears' "Shout" and The Doors' "Light My Fire" (a natural choice, of course). The link below will take you to several minutes of filmed snippets from the production. It looks fascinating, and I only wish I could view the play in its entirety!
