Many of you may know Damon Albarn as the frontman for Blur, or the guy who formed the Gorillaz, or the guy who recently launched a supergroup with the Clash’s Paul Simonon, The Good, the bad and the Queen.  But Abarn is mixing things up again, and is preparing for an opera that’s been commissioned by the first Manchester International Festival (June 28-July 15). 

In his first major project since the Gorillaz, Abarn will partner with Jamie Hewlett  to produce Monkey: Journey to the West, a re-working of the ancient Chinese legend Journey to the West.
