Anna Nicole Smith, The Opera
Word has it that the Royal Opera House in London is moving forward on Anna Nicole Smith, the Opera. British composer Mark-Anthony Turnage will work with librettist Richard Thomas, who created Jerry Springer, the Opera. The opera is expected to open in 2011.
When one reads the story of Anna Nicole Smith it does make for good opera fodder.
No word yet on if this is coming to the States, but once we hear something we'll share it here.
