Weird bands doin' weird stuff: the Knife/ opera edition

Unfortunately it probably won't include the strange and adorable little mouse family from the "Marble House" video, but the rumored new Darwinian opera from Swedish electronic brother/sister duo The Knife CAN promise three starring vocalists from the worlds of "electronica pop, classical opera and performance" all uniting to...sing songs about dinosaurs turning into birds and shit. According to the Daily Swarm, the Danish performance group Hotel Pro Forma will present the piece sometime in 2009 and that it will focus in some way, a way not yet entirely confirmed, around the 150th anniversary of The Origin of the Species.

And that's it! End of the story! I don't know anything else beyond that it's actually gonna happen...and now you know, too.
