Opera

Brokeback Mountain

Charles Wuorinen

28 Jan, 14 - 11 Feb, 14

Musical conductor: Titus Engel

Stage Director: Ivo van Hove

There are many parallels to be found between this work, which will have it's world première at the Teatro Real (Royal Theatre), and Tristan und Isolde. Just as in the opera by Richard Wagner, we are presented with a love on a cosmic scale, and one that is rejected by society. It is a love story set in a stunning landscape of mountains, only to be destroyed by society's expectations, just as in Wagner's opera. Annie Proulx, the author of the book of the same name, wrote the libretto so that the music by Charles Wuorinen could transcend the message of the film. Wuorinen himself states that nature in the opera is, "a constantly menacing, deadly force".
