Somewhere between the 2014 and 2015 season, composer Sung Jin Hong (Breaking Bad) is bringing Hannibal to the big stage. It's being called a serial opera, and will have a symphony using acoustic instruments only.
There's no further news as to who will be cast for the musical, or any other details at the moment. We're being teased right now, simply to build anticipation. However, a teaser trailer has been released confirming that this news is in fact true.
Just like with the character of Hannibal, I'm sure that this opera will be equal amounts of grotesque and classiness. I don't really do musical theater events like this, but I think this one's going to be the one to drag me off of my couch and into the madness.
Do you want to witness the macabre in opera form? I sure wouldn't mind.
