Although Anna Nicole Smith passed on back in 2007, her spirit lives on at the Royal Opera. The major opera house documents Smith’s chaotic life as a Playboy Playmate, model, actress, and fortune-hunting wife.
The NY Times gave the production a positive review, gushing “It proved a weirdly inspired work, an engrossing, outrageous, entertaining, and ultimately, deeply moving new opera. This was an improbably triumph for Covent Garden.”
In the opera's storyline, Smith’s character is determined to make it in Hollywood and “rape the American dream.” ABC News further reveals some of Smith’s one-liners, including, “I want to blow you all—a kiss” and “Oh, America, you dirty whore. I gave you everything but you wanted more.”
British composer Mark-Anthony Turnage penned the score. His biggest credit includes “Jerry Springer: The Opera.”
Performances run through March 4, with all five shows sold out.
