Jane Jacobs Vs. Robert Moses: The Opera (Wait, THE OPERA?)

“A group of New York artists is working on an opera telling the story of Jacobs’s fight against Moses’s utopian schemes to raze Manhattan neighbourhoods. The battles turned Jacobs, a freelance journalist married to an architect, into an activist and formed her thinking about urban issues articulated in her 1961 book The Death and Life of Great American Cities.”
