Insomnia inspired Harvard dictionary of music perusing motivated me to formulate a sketch for an underwater opera.

I suppose Scriabin has the choke-hold on outer space performances, and Stockhausen has a monopoly on helicopter string ensembles.

But underwater opera—that’s where it’s at baby.

Can you imagine Aida with fanned-out hair that hangs listless in the water, or Billy Budd with sea-soaked clingy overalls?

Ok I’m done. I’m just sayin’…

NATHAN GUNN MUST DIE!!! He is older, muscley-er, and a better singer. When you can't compete, kill the competition.

Glorious....with a mock sea battle included with stars diving in the water aflame.

Craiger-

When you confront Nathan Gunn, can you maybe pull his hair a little and then wrestle around some? Maybe take off your clothes and invite me over, you know wherever it leads...

Alexis-

I see I have a stage director on my hands. Love.
