The curtains have been pulled up slightly on Karen O's upcoming opera. The Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman will be bringing her "psycho opera" to St. Ann's Warehouse in DUMBO this October, in conjunction with the Creators Project—but until now that's about all we'd been told. Now Miss O says actress Lili Taylor, Beastie Boys DJ Money Mark, and members of The Greenhornes and The Raconteurs will be involved. (Paging Jack White?)

On the music front, Paste notes that she's "been collaborating with Spike Jonze’s brother Sam Spiegel and fellow Yeah Yeah Yeahs bandmate Nick Zinner."

In a statement she said it would be a “psychedelic ride laced with catharsis," and added, "I have a pretty good idea of what the psycho opera is about but I wouldn't dare try and put it into my clumsy words. I'm hoping to create an original live experience... This piece isn't aiming to be all about spectacle or abstraction though there is good helping of both in the production. It's aiming to have all the good stuff of escapist entertainment with a few sucker punches to the gut along the way."
