Anna Nicole Smith...the Opera
Yeah...you read that right! ANNA NICOLE SMITH the OPERA!!!!! Really if you live in the Uk you have to go see this. I beg you :)
So, Anna Nicole Smith the opera will be performed at the Royal Opera House at Covent Garden for February 2011 with Dutch soprano Eva-Maria Westbroek in the title role.
Here's the blurb from the website:
A world premiere on the fascinating subject of Anna Nicole Smith. A model for Playboy, marriage to an octogenarian billionaire, scandal, legal battles and early death – this is the real-life story that has inspired Mark-Anthony Turnage’s new opera. Inevitably adult themes, strong language and sexually explicit content are part of this exciting work. Richard Jones directs this major new opera, with Antonio Pappano conducting a cast that has Eva-Maria Westbroek in the title role.
