I wish I could quit – ripping off Hollywood

My opera updates are starting to sound more like Chuck Shepherd’s News of the Weird. Last week we explored the idea of a lonely polar bear singing a heartbreaking aria on a melting icecap in An Inconvenient Truth – The Opera.

Today we get to decide who the baritone is and who is the tenor? In the new announcement that the New York City Opera will be staging Brokeback Mountain – The Opera.

Really? Really? Well Ennis and Jack – I’m really looking forward to the aria by Alma,”Don't try and fool me no more, Ennis; I know what it means! Jack Twist. Jack Nasty! You didn't go up there to fish!”
