Anna Nicole The Opera

April 7, 2008 By:

British playwright Richard Thomas wants to turn Anna Nicole's life into an Opera.  It would be staged at the Royal Opera House in London. 

He says, "It's an incredible story.  It's very operatic and sad. She was quite a smart lady with the tragic flaw that she could not seem to get through life without a vat of prescription painkillers."

"For me, it ends when she does. It's an American story. I love American culture. Especially for opera, the stories seem to work on a grander, more epic scale. They seem more extreme — it's a blessing and a curse."

This is the same man that brought us Jerry Springer. Yeah, he's a real class act.  There's American culture for ya!
