Karen O swaps microphone for classical music instruments
The singer-songwriter is collaborating with the playwright Adam Rapp on what is being dubbed as a "psycho-opera".
It will debut in New York in October.
The opera has yet to have a title but has been described as "an assault on the tragic joys of youth".
It is being produced by the Studio, which is a new initiative launched by arts and technology group the Creators Project.
O, who also wrote the music for the cult Spike Jonze film Where the Wild Things Are, joins a growing band of popstars who are making the crossover into classical music and the world of stage.
Blur's Damon Albarn recently wrote an opera based on the Elizabethan polymath Dr John Dee, while U2 wrote the music for the Spider-man musical, which is currently rocking Broadway.
This isn't the end of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, who first came together in 2000, just one of the many side projects that keep them occupied beyond their regular band duties.
Their last album was It's Blitz! which was released in 2009.
