Marilyn Opera in Banff

Anyone Can See I Love You, a new opera about the life of Marilyn Monroe, opens at the Banff Centre, Canada, this weekend.

Eivør Pálsdóttir, a singer-songwriter from the Faroese islands, plays Monroe, and the production may tour internationally.

Composed by Gavin Bryars, the opera is based on Marilyn Bowering‘s 1987 poetry collection of the same name, which has also been adapted as a radio play for BBC Scotland.

Incidentally, Monroe herself stayed in Banff while filming River of No Return in 1953.
