Product description

Product Description

In a tragic-comic take on the extremes of celebrity culture, composer Mark Anthony Turnage, librettist Richard Thomas and director Richard Jones add Anna Nicole Smith to opera's gallery of bad, sad girls. A pneumatic Playboy model who married an octogenarian billionaire, she achieved grotesque fame before her destitute, drugriddled death. With its jazz-coloured score and Eva-Maria Westbroek's starry performance, this is, as the New York Times said: “an engrossing outrageous, entertaining and, ultimately deeply moving opera”.

Press Reviews

"It's a tremendous show...shocking it isn't; stunning it is!" (The Independent)
"The more Turnage and his librettist, Richard Thomas, pile one cringe-making scene upon another, the harder it is to look away...the whole cast is excellent..." (Gramophone)
"such pulsing energy and raucous humour in a brassy, vivid score that is perfectly matched to its trailer-trash subject...Nobody...could fail to admire Richard Jones's flamboyantly inventive staging or Eva-Maria Westbroek's brave and sassy performance in the title role of the rags-to-riches girl who married a billionaire and met a tragic end.

Review

...It's a tremendous show...shocking it isn't; stunning it is! --The Independent

Eva-Maria Westbroek is the game soprano who takes on the title- role,singing in excellent English and making the journey from glamour babe to fat-and-frumpy loser with admirable panache.Bit then the whole cast is excellent,from Gerald Finley's lawyer Stern and Susan Bickley's feisty Mother to Alan Oke as the 89-year-old second husband,all bolstered by a vivid musical performance under Pappano. --Gramophone,Nov'11
