Perfect Lives: An Opera for Television in Seven Episodes
Review: (Required): 

People have called this self-proclaimed "Opera For Television" the first
distinctly American opera. John Cage said expressed his favor in an over-the-top
fashion, "Who needs the Bible? We have Perfect Lives." In either case, the sentiment
of an enlightening and utterly singular experience is well-placed. You won't see any
of the classical influence here except in its grand scope and ambition. Despite its
low video production values, Perfect Lives truly shows a great potential for
television accommodating high art, if it isn't already a perfect fit.
