Anna Nicole Smith’s life is skipping right past TV movie and heading straight for the opera!
BBC 4 will be airing Anna Nicole - The Opera, which tells the story of her rise to fame and how she married a billionaire 60 years older than her, and then died of a drug overdose at 39 years old.
Recently, we had heard that Anna Nicole's life would be getting the musical treatment, but who knew it would become a full-fledged opera?
We wonder if they’ll incorporate current Anna Nicole-related news into the opera. At the moment, the man who was her boyfriend and two men who were her doctors are being charged with keeping her in a perpetually heavily drugged state.
Mark Anthony Turnage, an Olivier award-winning composer, is developing the opera. This is good news, because it’s important for the man behind an Anna Nicole opera to have an impressive pedigree. We wouldn’t want it to be mishandled.
What will be next after the opera? A Feature film? A National Anna Nicole holiday? Guess we’ll have to see how the opera goes first. We have a very morbid curiosity about this project…we’ll be keeping an eye and an ear out.
Do U think Anna Nicole’s life deserves the opera treatment?
