Royal Opera House, WTF?

I found this on the Royal Opera Company Youtube page.

Seriously, what the fuck?

Of all the modern people and modern stories to tell, they picked Anna Nicole Smith?

This makes no sense.

I’m all for telling stories, but Anna Nicole Smith? John Adams did an opera called Nixon in China! (I think he also did an opera about Robert Oppenheimer.)

Here’s an aria from Nixon in China.

I heard a student sing this at the Cleveland Institute of Music. It was electrifying. I have never forgotten it.

I also include News, which was also performed that evening.
