Undated photo released by The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, London Friday Feb. 18, 2011 shows Dutch Soprano Eva Maria Westbroek as Anna Nicole in the title role of the Royal Opera House's production of "Anna Nicole." It's a rags-to-riches story with sex, drugs, vast wealth and family tragedy. Perfect material for an opera. Still, Britain's venerable Royal Opera raised some eyebrows when it announced that its next production would be based on the short, sensational life of Playboy Playmate-turned-tabloid-superstar Anna Nicole Smith.
