Sofia Coppola to Direct an Opera

Sofia Coppola
Talent sure runs in the Coppola family.

Sofia Coppola will stage Puccini’s tragic opera Manon Lescaut at the Montpellier Opera in France for the 2009-2010 season. This will be her first try at opera.

Music runs in the Coppola blood as Sofia’s grandfather, Carmine Coppola, was an Oscar-winning composer for his son’s film Godfather Part II.

French tenor Roberto Alagna will star.
