The Life and Death of Anna Nicole Smith to be made into and opera

The life and death of Anna Nicole Smith will be made into an opera by British composer Mark-Anthony Turnage.

The production will be staged at the Royal Opera House in London's Covent Garden in 2011.

‘It is not going to be a horrible, sleazy evening,’ director of opera Elaine Padmore, tells The Guardian. ‘It is going to be witty, clever, thoughtful and sad.

‘It is not just a documentary about her, but a parable about celebrity and what it does to people.’

Richard Thomas, who is co-creator of Jerry Springer: The Opera, will pen the songs.

Anna Nicole died of an accidental drug overdose in February 2007 at the age of 39.
