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.

Congratulations to all involved in the live webcast and the world premier.

Brokeback Mountain, the opera

I enjoyed the orchestration very much. The libretto is a superb storytelling.

The production values are excellent.

IMO, and it is, IMO, the vocal line for the two male leads is repetitive and there is not really a melody line for either role. For me this makes the vocal line monotonous.

Thank you to medici.tv  for the live webcast so those of us not in Madrid can see this world premier of the opera #BrokebackMountain
