The mad, sad and tumultuous life of former Texan Vicki Lynn Hogan (a.k.a. Anna Nicole Smith) will be the subject of a new opera by Mark-Anthony Turnage (“The Silver Tassie”) and librettist Richard Thomas (“Jerry Springer the Opera”), scheduled to premiere at Covent Garden in 2011.
Thanks to Patron Services Coordinator Shelly Garcia for the heads-up. Here’s the story from Charlotte Higgins at “The Guardian.”
