This was forwarded to me, after passing through several interesting hands. “The Onion” has envisioned a warm and fuzzy Captain Ahab, but I’ll be surprised if he turns up in this guise on The Dallas Opera stage when Jake Heggie’s Moby-Dick opens next year.
It would make for some amusing arias, though, wouldn’t it?
Here’s Gregory Peck as Ahab sharing some intimate quality time with the White Whale.
