Christoph Waltz - Christoph Waltz To Direct Opera

Oscar winner Christoph Waltz is stepping into the world of classical music after signing up to direct his first opera.

The Django Unchained star recently told German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung he will be in charge of a new production of Der Rosenkavalier by Richard Strauss, reports the Los Angeles Times.

Waltz, a longtime opera fan, also described his latest venture as "an experiment" in the interview.

The show is scheduled to debut on 15 December (13) at the Vlaamse Opera in Antwerp, Belgium, and is expected to transfer to London's Royal Opera House in 2016.

The Austrian-born star studied opera in the early days of his career as a performer.
