Courtney Love to Star in ‘Pop’ Opera, ‘Kansas City Choir Boy’

By Philip Cosores

Courtney Love can seemingly do it all. She’s a legendary songwriter and frontwoman, an acclaimed actress, a fashion mogul, a heck of an interview giver and much more. Now, she will add a more unexpected gig to her extensive resume: opera singer.

To be fair, it will be “pop” opera singer. Love has been cast as one of the leads in the upcoming staging of Kansas City Choir Boy, which will take place at New York’s Prototype: Opera/Theater/Now Festival from January 8th to 17th. Love will star in 10 performances over that time. Hope she drinks her hot tea, as that sure is a lot of singing!

“I love the concept, and I’m loving the music,” Love told Rolling Stone. “I’m playing it constantly. I’m looking to do things that are different. I just finished a rock tour of Australia, and it was great, but I’ve been doing that for a long time. I wanted to do something challenging.”
