Anna Nicole Smith Inspires Opera
The crazy life of Anna Nicole Smith, who is remembered for her breasts and being a playboy girl in 1992 and 1993, will be presented as an opera at the Royal Opera House London.
Mark-Anthony Turnage, a young musician, is the composer of the score based on the life of Anna Nicole, a story full of sex, drugs and silicone written by librettist Richard Thomas that promises to fill the Covent Garden of a younger audience.
Thomas acknowledged that he had softened some scenes that are considered too erotic to be presented at the Convent Garden. The stage manager, Richard Jones,confessed to the fascinating contrast “between the secular and church history of art (Royal Opera House)”,where it will be presented. Antonio Pappano will conduct the symphony, and the soprano Eva Maria Westbrock, will play the lead role.
On February 8, 2007, Anna Nicole decided to commit suicide with an overdose of pills. Anna Nicole opera will premiere in the temple of bel canto London in a couple of weeks.
