Thanks for this Hedvig.
Speaking of operas, I am part of a team working on the libretto for an opera that will premier in New York, Santa Fe, Moscow, and Beijing in 2015/2016, based on a book by Umberto Eco, The Three Astronauts: http://ardeaarts.com/the-three-astronauts/
Its librettists include, besides me, best-selling Russian author Dmitri Glukhovsky, Chinese jazz musician and author Sola Liu, and Pulitzer-Prize winning poet, Yusek Komunyakaa. There is an international team of composers working on this, as the site indicates.

Thanks, that's a nice piece of linguistic trivia.
Have you also heard of the opera by Charles F. Hockett, "The Loves of Dona Rosita", and its rather special twist?
Sharing is caring, if you stumble across something you think I might find interesting then send it my way. I do the same.
Please forgive me for any mistakes of orthography (especially Swedish and French diacritics), I try to answer as fast as possible and sometimes that results in less than optimal key board output.

The link below is to a 1964 song performed by Jerry Lee Lewis and his band. It is on a couple of Lewis’s albums. Its linguistic relevance? It was composed by a young Geoffrey Pullum.
