How like a turtle the sun looks

Our story this far:

17 October 2006: La Cieca reports (erroneously) that Andrea Gruber is about to be “bought out” of a Met revival of La fanciulla del West.

20 October 2006: La Cieca discovers that the Fanciulla isn’t happening; Gruber and Salvatore Licitra possibly to be cast in the replacement opera?

21 October 2006: Then again, eh, probably not, since those two don’t really have roles in the opera that (La Cieca hears) will be performed at the Met next season. Following in the footsteps of South Park Elementary, the Metropolitan will present a “happy, non-offensive, non-denominational” opera, “with music and lyrics by New York minimalist composer, Philip Glass” — the 1980 work Satyagraha.
