The details of Anna Nicole Smith's rise to fame and subsequent fall are at times scandalous, humorous and tragic. So it's no wonder the deceased Playboy model's life has been fodder for an episode of 'Law & Order: Criminal Intent,' a biopic starring Willa Ford and now... an opera?

That's right. The Royal Opera House in London is planning an opera based on the life of Anna Nicole Smith, BBC News reports. From the same people who brought you 'Jerry Springer: The Opera.'

Premiering in February 2011, the Dutch soprano Eva-Maria Westbroek will take the lead role as Anna Nicole.
