Coming in 2013: Brokeback Mountain the Opera

Originally posted 06/09/2008 12:10PM

Sing it from the hilltops: the love story of Brokeback Mountain is being revived – as an opera.

The New York City Opera has commissioned American composer Charles Wuorinen to set to music the Oscar-winning film starring Jake Gyllenhaal and the late Heath Ledger.

Based on the short story by Annie Proulx, the opera, like the feature film, will follow the 20-year love affair of two men who fall in love in 1963 Wyoming. Wuorinen has already agreed to compose the opera, set to premier during the City Opera's 2013 spring season.
