The songs of Bruce Springsteen have been adapted into a rock 'n' roll opera.

Springsteen has given his blessing to the work, entitled 'Drive All Night', which is scheduled for kick off in March in New York.

Darrell Larson and Stephanie Kerly Schwartz conceived the opera and have been at work on it for two years.

Described by Lasrson as a "sung-through opera", the show tells the story of a man called Eddie returning to his hometown and the woman he loves.
