Gorillaz to Collaborate With Renowned German Opera



Gorillaz is planning to collaborate with the renowned German opera company Staatsoper

Their recent concert stint at Harlem's Apollo Theater drew negative reviews, but that doesn't mean they can't do better. Approvingly, the animated band Gorillaz is planning to collaborate with the renowned German opera company Staatsoper on a production featuring the original music of the band.

In the accompanying feature, Gorillaz leader Damon Albarn reportedly also will write the music for "Monkey Journey To The West." Based on a book by 16th century Chinese author Wu Cheng'en, the production will depict the metamorphosis of a monkey into a human. Staatsoper musical director, Daniel Barenboim, revealed further that "Monkey Journey To The West" is aimed for younger audience and will premiere in Berlin on July 31 next year.
