Ylva Kihlberg Is The New Bjork

Dancer in the Dark is to become an Opera, premiering at Denmark's Royal Theatre during their 2010-2011 season. Already the Swedish soprano Ylva Kihlberg - pictured below - has been given the lead role of Selma.

Henrik Engelbrecht is writing the libretto in English while Poul Ruders will compose the music - presumably with Bjork's original pieces as a foundation? There's no suggestion that Lars von Trier will be directly involved in any way.
