Opera to portray Clinton’s childhood

New York: A new opera based on Bill Clinton’s life – ‘Billy Blythe’ will be released this fall.

The opera has been penned by an Arkansas songwriter and poet and is titled after the 42nd President`s birth name, William Jefferson Blythe.

The play will portray the former President’s difficult childhood and is inspired from Clinton’s autobiography.

"Clinton`s life is very operatic, over the top, the perfect operatic vision," The New York Daily News quoted musician Bonnie Montgomery as telling US News & World Report.

"He paints this myth - it`s storytelling, beautiful and imaginative writing," she said.

Montgomery is scoring the opera and poet Britt Barber is supplying the words.
