Sacha Baron Cohen is a comedian who has created a lot of rather controversial press around his portrayal of the very un-PC Kazakhstani reporter Borat. His new "Borat" movie is opening on November 3rd.
His antics have not pleased the Kazakhstan government, but their new "Pyramid of Peace and Accord" may be just the positive spin they need in the world's eyes. It even has a 1500-seat opera house!
Will opera fans be flocking to Kazakhstan soon? Maybe not, but the building is getting some good attention in the world's press today.
