Alan Moore Writing John Dee Opera

From Needcoffee dot com:

So, quite some time ago Tuffley told me that Alan Moore (Promethea, Lost Girls, Swamp Thing, The Voice of the Fire, Snakes and Ladders, self-professed conceptual magician, author, comics creator, playwright, crazed bearded man of the Northampton woods) would be teaming up with Damon Albarn (Blur, several soundtracks you love, including the one for Ravenous) and Jamie Hewlett (Tank Girl)–the two finely diseased minds behind Gorillaz. They are getting together for the purposes of creating an opera about the life of Dr. John Dee (Secret Servant to Queen Elizabeth I, transcriber of the Enochian Letters, first 007).

I’m a great fan of Moore’s work, not just because he allows me the occasional use of the phrase “hand-puppet cult,” and I hope this comes to fruition.

  1. Here’s hoping they can get the participation of Dr. Dee’s most musically gifted descendant, Kool Moe Dee.

  2. Cool beans.
