About

A world premiere at the Teatro Real Madrid: Brokeback Mountain, Charles Wuorinen's new opera, composed after Annie Proulx's novel and Ang Lee's multi Oscar winning movie.

One of the highlights of the 2014 operatic season, Brokeback Mountain is a new opera composed by Charles Wuorinen after the original short story of Annie Proulx. First published in the New Yorker in 1997, then in the collection of Wyoming stories, Close Range, the story of Brokeback Mountain is well-known worldwide thanks to the Academy Award-winning film adaptation made by Ang Lee in 2005, starring Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal.
