Air India opera takes flight.

The Vancouver funding agency Arts Partners in Creative Development announced yesterday that they will pony up $131,000 to allow the PuSh International Performing Arts Festival, in conjunction with Ireland’s Cork Midsummer Arts Festival, to create an opera based on the events surrounding the 1985 Air India flight 182 tragedy. The finding is part of a $1.1 million arts package associated with the Vancouver Olympiad year.

In other news, this opera will do nothing to help my fear of flying.
