Subject: [Puptcrit] Anthony Minghella 1954-2008

Sad news

Before he became an Academy Award winning film director, Anthony Minghella
(the English Patient, The Talented Mr Ripley) wrote the scripts for  Jim
Henson's brilliant and innovative Storyteller series.

He recently directed the opera, Madama Butterfly, in England and at the
Metropolitan Opera in NYC.
The production includes a much discussed puppet performance

Just last night I was speaking to 2 of the puppeteers who worked in the
Met's production.

Today's news says Mr Minghella had a surgical procedure today, and at first
things seemed to go well, but he died of  a hemorrhage following surgery.
