Damon Albarn To Pen Another Opera

The frontman of both Blur and the Gorillaz is set to write an opera that will be debuting well this summer in the UK. The opera of which is titled Doctor Dee is about a real life Doctor John Dee who was a medical and scientific advisor to Queen Elizabeth I. It turns out though that Dee was also an alchemist, astrologer and a spy. Interesting. Albarn already has some opera under his belt with Monkey: Journey to the West in which he took a total backstage part in will be performing as well as writing in this case. Wow. I am not sure what to say here
