Subject: Sofia Coppola to make opera directing debut

Written By: Philip Eno on 02/10/16 at 4:54 am

Lost in Translation and The Bling Ring director Sofia Coppola is to make her opera directing debut in Rome later this year.

The 44-year-old daughter of director Francis Ford Coppola is teaming up with fashion designer Valentino for the production of Verdi's La Traviata at the Rome Opera House.

Valentino asked her to work with him having watched her 2006 film Marie Antoinette.

Carlo Fuortes, general manager of the Rome Opera Foundation, said the production would take inspiration from the world of film.

Its premiere is due to take place in May.
