It's Not Over Until The Gay Cowboy Sings

The legend of Jack Twist and Ennis Del Mar will live forever, the latest iteration coming in the form of Brokeback Mountain: The Opera. The New York City Opera has commissioned an opera based on Annie Proulx's short story, to open in 2013.

While I don't know anything about arias, I do think Andrew Lloyd Webber's I Don't Know How to Love Him from Jesus Christ Superstar fits the playbill perfectly.
I don't know how to quit him.
What to do, how to split from him.
I've been changed, yes really changed.
In these past few days, when I've seen myself,
I seem like someone else.
I don't know how to take this.
I don't see why he moves me.
He's a man. He's just a man.
And I've never had a man before
In any way,
He's just one score.
Ha, this is easy. I should be in musical theatre!

  1. Somehow I just can't see Brokeback... as an opera...a Broadway musical maybe...but not an opera...

  2. I think what amuses me about this concept is not Brokeback as an opera, but why the New York City Opera feels it needs to delve into pop culture for a new production. It's the kind of gimmick that is likely not to please opera buffs or Brokeback fans.

  3. A Brokeback Mountain opera?... Will it be great? I think it won't. I prefer to have a Brokeback Mountain sequel on theaters.
