The Jerry Springer Show is going to be turned into an opera.

Honest. 

"They say the opera isn't over until the fat lady sings maybe we can provide them with that," Springer told The Post

The opera will feature more than a dozen classically trained singers and is part of a run of "work in progress" shows that are scheduled to play in south London starting August 21. 

"The work will be, to an extent, unfinished," comedic playwright Richard Thomas told a reporter for a London newspaper. "The purpose of these shows is to try to raise money to stage it on a Lion King-size budget." 

Thomas did not contact Springer before mounting the opera but still has the thumbs up from the controversial talk-show host. 

"I'd go see it," Springer said. "I guess there have been operas about greater tragedies than this, so what the heck." 

Thomas is best known for writing Tourette's Diva act, a regular feature on the popular BBC show Attention Scum

In the show, a pair of opera singers slug it out in profanity-laced songs like "Do You Ever Wonder Why Your Imaginary Friend Committed Suicide?" and "Everybody Hates You." 

Springer enjoys immense popularity in England, where he was born to parents who survived the Holocaust. 

He stars on three TV shows and commutes to London every other week. He even was a political commentator for one of Britain's commercial channels during its general election returns broadcast last June. 

"How could I not be honored," Springer said. 

"I think the show has become somewhat a part of the culture. I'm not sure it's a plus, but it's probably true." 

Besides appearing on British television in episodes of his trademark Jerry Springer Show, he also hosts a late night variety show and is slated to emcee a British version of the game show Greed.
