New opera to portray Bill Clinton's 'difficult childhood'

     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 U.S. 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.
