Playwright: why I made Jade Goody's life into an opera

The life of Jade Goody, the dental-nurse turned reality TV star, is being made into an opera.

And The Crowd (wept), written by Afsaneh Gray, has been more than three years in the making and includes a score composed by Erick Flores.

The opera follows Jade's journey from her arrival on Big Brother in 2002 to her death from cervical cancer in 2009.
