is hoping to return to Istanbul, Turkey with a new opera featuring a local critic's harsh review of the actor's last production in the city. The "Being John Malkovich" star was floored by the criticism of The Infernal Comedy, in which he starred as part of the 17th International Istanbul Theatre Festival this summer - but he has derived something positive out of it.
The theatre critic's review will be part of a new opera, "The Malkovich Torment", which the actor hopes to take back to Istanbul next year. He tells WENN, "I was sent this one review and I really regretted that decision because I so enjoyed doing it (The Infernal Comedy). I was doing a second opera this summer called The Music Critic at Julian Rachlin's film festival in Dubrovnik and the concept was to get all the most horrific reviews on Beethoven, Brahms, Debussy, Mozart, Bach etc. and read these terrible, terrible reviews and then play the piece."
