John wrote a post about this a little over a year ago, and now C&L is proud to present the Bill O'Reilly Opera! Using the transcript of telephone calls taken from Bill O'Reilly's 2004 sexual harassment case, Igor Keller composed the opera, Mackris vs O'Reilly -

The piece is a setting of the sexual harassment complaint lodged against Fox News pundit, Bill O’Reilly, by staff producer, Andrea Mackris, in October 2004 and recorded at its world premiere in January 2007. It includes all memorable moments from the original complaint and more – paranoid rants, clumsy sexual innuendo, and the famous falafel fantasy. Composer Igor Keller has produced this concert-length work in the form of a baroque oratorio, in the style of an updated Handel’s Messiah, for 28-piece chamber orchestra, 26-voice chorus and three soloists. It’s an oratorio for the 21st century! Read on...

Rated C, for Creepy - viewer discretion advised. :)
