Opera Seeds Planted in Livingston, Mont.?

Within the daddy-daughter struggles can come great art For example Giuseppe Verdi's used his own unhappy time as a father to create operas Rigoletto, Stiffelio and Simon Boccanegra. So what is needed is for either the daughter who added lamp oil to her dad's Jello or the father of the Livingston, Mont., 15-year-old who was upset with her for staying out past curfew to turn a teen's simple act of vengeance into the complex cast of art.

Or, maybe someone else can take a shot at it so that someday large people with large voices can give voice to the tragedy of a daughter who kills her dad, or, as in the case of Rigoletto, a father who mistakenly kills his daughter.
