What opera are you listening to now


Viet Nam

I actually heard some opera twice today.
At the start of the new “Alien Covenant” movie,
the man gets his android to play piano for him, and he picks some Wagner.
The man names the piece, saying it doesn’t have the same intensity without the orchestra.

I watched “The Accountant” later on, a kinda original movie starring Ben Affleck,
all the gun and fight violence not being the original aspects of it.
As an adult he listened to opera when he was alone in his room.
At least I thought it was opera. The soundtrack was as deceptive as the movie.

I can’t read the foreign language on the CD cover,
but is this a previously undiscovered opera about a European composers’ cruise vacation to the American wild west?
If that was modern horse action, it would be disavowed by the American Humane Association.
It looks like Paul Bunyan had a… oh… oh… bit part.
