I know, I know. It sounds like something I’d make up. Alas, it’s a real thing:
And from the page:
Local dance company – Rebecca Davis Dance – is putting on GREED: The Tale of Enron, a ballet that follows the careers of Enron Chief Executive Jeffrey Skilling and other executives including the late Kenneth Lay, Andrew Fastow and Cliff Baxter.
Set to edgy contemporary alternative rock, the performance explores the rivalries, ambitions, deceptions, and greed that powered Enron’s meteoric ascent. Enron lobbyists ensured the deregulation, triggering years of sky-high mark-to-market “profits” and stock manipulations – until the world demanded the real balance sheet. The resulting turmoil paints a stunning contrast between the poignant scruples and bold avarice behind a debacle whose echoes grow louder in today’s economy.
GREED not only explores the psyche of the executives responsible for Enron’s meltdown, but also speculates on how its fate may have been changed by female leadership – exploring questions of leadership style and loyalty, gender and greed, and more.

But the whole thing is just exasperating.
My Enron ballet is much better.
