The Anthropocene at the opera

Last year, in an article we commissioned for openDemocracy's debate on the politics of climate change, Bill McKibben wrote:

"But oddly, though we know about [climate change], we don’t know about it. It hasn’t registered in our gut; it isn’t part of our culture. Where are the books? The poems? The plays? The goddamn operas?"

Now, the Ashden Trust has published what seems to be the first review of the world's first opera about climate change, And While London Burns.
