ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON THIS PERFORMANCE

Quote from Wikipedia: Brokeback Mountain is an opera by American composer Charles Wuorinen, with a libretto in English by Annie Proulx, based on her 1997 short story “Brokeback Mountain”. They began work on it in 2008 under a commission by Gerard Mortier of the New York City Opera. He took the project with him to the Teatro Real of Madrid, where the opera was premiered on January 28, 2014.

Composition history
In 2007, Wuorinen, a Pulitzer Prize-winning American composer, saw the 2005 film directed by Ang Lee and “was inspired by its operatic possibilities.” He approached Proulx with the idea of turning her short story into an opera and “to ask for her blessing to adapt the story for opera. Proulx went one step further, offering to write the libretto”.
