The Atkins Diet Opera

Every year, as part of the Ig Nobel Prizes ceremony, the assembled dancers and Nobel Prize winners (really!) perform an opera, specially composed for the occasion. At this year’s ceremony, they performed the Atkins Diet Opera, chronicling Dr Atkins’ search for a New Atkins Diet. The script is available here, and video is available here. (Warning: contains pictures of the Ig Nobel Prize for Biology winners in a can-can kick line.) Read the script, if only for the chorus of “The New Atkins Diet”.
