Brokeback at your own Risk

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!
