Could this work as a ballet?

**A Russian composer has drawn inspiration from the Monica Lewinsky affair for an opera based at the Kremlin. The Saratov Opera has agreed to show
"Monica in the Kremlin" by Vitali Okorokov, who said the penultimate scene of the opera will be when Lewinsky meets with the Russian president,
Vladimir Putin, and is revealed to be a double agent working for the KGB and the CIA.**
There is one from an Indian news site:
This is even better (because true) than the parody opera based on "Don Giovanni" with Bill Clinton as the Don, James Carville as Leporello, Monica Lewinsky as Zerlina, etc.

Happy New Year, Ed -- good to see you posting again. We've missed you smile.gif And thanks for the links -- they're a good laugh.
Anyone with good, solid, newsworthy ballet ideas?

A similar problem appears when casting our former Fearless Leader. After all, there is that important moment when he sucks in his tummy for Monica's benefit and she assures him that she likes a pot on a guy.

Do not despair. We always have James Canfield, David Bintley (I see a pas de trois for Lewinsky, Clinton and a cigar) or Boris Eifman!
