Anna Nicole Smith’s life story to be turned into opera.

The life and death of the Playboy Playmate will be made into an opera by British composer Mark-Anthony Turnage at London’s Covent Garden in 2011.

“It is not going to be a horrible, sleazy evening,” director 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.”

Anna Nicole, 39, died of an accidental drug overdose in February 2007.
