The Fly. Now in Opera Form.

If you missed the "Lord of the Rings" run in Canada, you can still get a dose of live-action sci-fi/fantasy in L.A. in the form of "The Fly: the Opera." It's based on the 1986 film classic "The Fly" and boasts a good bit of star power: Placido Domingo conducts, and the production features original music by Howard Shore, who scored the Lord of the Rings.

The Fly is an engrossing exploration of the physical and psychological transformation in which a brilliant scientist begins to mutate into a hybrid of man and fly after one of his experiments goes horribly wrong. Researcher Seth Brundle makes a stunning breakthrough in the field of matter transportation when he successfully teleports a living creature. Frustrated in his budding romance with a scientific journalist, and in need of a human subject, he recklessly attempts to teleport himself. An unseen fly enters the transmission booth as well, however, and Brundle soon realizes that his experiment has had "mixed" results.
