The Art Newspaper have published news that the tale of Leonardo's Salvator Mundi is going to be transformed into a musical.

According to the Caiola Productions Company:

It will follow the story of how a shredded, scratched wooden panel painting of Jesus purchased for $1,100 in 2005, evolved to become the Leonardo da Vinci masterpiece—lost for over 500 years—titled Salvator Mundi that in 2017 was auctioned at Christie’s auction house for over $450m...

The Musical will mix the “historical reportage of Hamilton with the fantasy and delight of Willy Wonka's golden ticket”, the company says.

Will dealer Robin Simon, conservator Dianne Modestini, Leonardo scholar Martin Kemp and various Christie's experts be written into the script and given singing roles, I wonder?
