Culture and entertainment: This is reported by Sveriges Radio, which writes that it is the British composer Paul Corfield Godfrey who writes the music.

The rights holders after Tolkien have approved that the book work be reworked into an opera. And it won’t be just one opera – but a whole opera cycle, which will require six all-nighters to see in its entirety.

Altogether there will be 30 chapters and a length of 15 hours.

The music is already being recorded by the National Opera in Wales and will be released in 2025.
