Hi folks! Sorry for my prolonged absence, have been on the job hunt… But I just got some exciting news I had to share…
Don’t know if you’ve been following Brokeback Mountain‘s journey from short story by Annie Proulx to Oscar-winning movie by Ang Lee to the new opera by Charles Wuorinen, but just such an opera premiered at Madrid’s Teatro Real in late January.
While Teatro Real has a streaming service on their site, you have to pay for it (an interesting model, for sure). However, tomorrow at 2pm Eastern Time, the opera will be live-streamed from Madrid on Medici TV online.
Wuorinen and the opera have gotten mixed reviews (short on lyrical moments for a kind of love story, but with interesting orchestration), but who knows when your next chance to heat it will be! Not to mention: hot gay cowboy makeouts, wooo!
Here’s a preview for tomorrow, hope you can make it!
