Hamlet in Rock!

There are a lot of reasons why Opera is not easily accessible -- foreign language, elongated vowels make terrible diction, silly plot line, bad acting and so forth.  I love it all.  I came across this on youtube and I think you should take a look.  Everyone knows the story.  It's sung in English with English subtitles with additional explanations.  The story is a masterpiece and it's faithful to the original Shakespeare.  And the music is pop/rock.  It is definitely an Opera -- it's theater and music combined.
