An opera based on the life of Anna Nicole Smith has opened at The Royal Opera House in London.

The modern opera tells the story of the life of the Playboy Playmate turned celebrity who died at the age of 39.

Critics were initially unsure of the idea but the six scheduled performances have all sold out.
