2. THEATER: Brokeback Mountain, The Opera
If you love opera and Brokeback Mountain, we'll predict that you'll enjoy Annie Proulx's adaptation of her novella into an epic opera. Proulx's collaboration with Charles Wuorinen will premiere Tuesday at Teatro Realin Madrid. According to Out, the opera is fiercely dedicated to the source material, which Proulx says is not a sentimental story: “It is a story about rural regional homophobia ... in a situation that needlessly ends in tragedy. It is only a romantic story if you think the inability to conquer fear and self-loathing are romantic.”
