Gorillaz Writing New Opera

GORILLAZ founders DAMON ALBARN and JAMIE HEWLETT are teaming up with comic book icon ALAN MOORE to write a new opera.
The project will be a follow-up to Albarn and Hewlett's Monkey: Journey to the West, which debuted in 2007 to critical acclaim.
Moore, the man behind Watchmen and V for Vendetta, reveals, "We're planning for me to do the libretto (text) on their next opera project."
