Animated band Gorillaz are set to break more ground next year (07) - by writing the music for a new opera named Monkey Journey To the West. The Clint Eastwood hitmakers will collaborate with leading German opera company Staatsoper and Chinese opera director CHEN SHI-ZHENG. The work will be based on 16th-century Chinese author WU CHENG'EN's works and chart the transformation of a monkey into a human being. Staasoper conductor DANIEL BARENHBOIM hopes the unlikely collaboration will inspire a younger audience to seek and appreciate opera. He says, "The lack of musical education means that music is in danger of gradually losing its place in society."
