Add to Calendar 17-09-2013 28-09-2013 15 Anna Nicole Composed by Mark-Anthony Turnage to a libretto by Richard Thomas, Anna Nicole tells the story of Anna Nicole Smith, a small-town Texas waitress (and, later, exotic dancer) in pursuit of the American Dream. Smith weds an octogenarian billionaire and becomes a Playboy model and tabloid celebrity, living a life of excess and substance abuse under the constant glare of the media until her death at the age of 39. The opera mixes comedy and tragedy and boldly confronts issues of modern celebrity, greed and exploitation. Richard Jones directs this U.S. premiere, a co-production with BAM that kicks off the 2013 Next Wave Festival. The diverse cast for Anna Nicole includes Sarah Joy Miller as Anna Nicole, Susan Bickley as Virgie, Robert Brubaker as Old Man Marshall, Rod Gilfry as Stern, John Easterlin as Larry King, Stephen Wallem as Trucker, Mary Testa as Aunt Kaye, Christina Sajous as Blossom, James Barbour as Daddy Hogan, Ben Davis as Billy and Joshua Jeremiah as Deputy Mayor. Steven Sloane will conduct the New York City Opera Orchestra. No performances 9/18, 20, 22, 23, 26. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=133177 New York City Opera true DD/MM/YYYY
