The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs

July 22 - August 25

Composer Mason Bates and librettist Mark Campbell have created an opera about the life of Steve Jobs. Although other opera companies – like those in San Francisco and Seattle – are planning on staging the work, Santa Fe is the place to catch the hotly anticipated premiere.

21CM Takeaway: Who better to evoke the writing of an eclectic, genre-blending opera than Steve Jobs? And who better to write it than composer and high-tech DJ Mason Bates? The instrumental possibilities described by Bates are instantly exciting: Tibetan prayer bowls, Chinese gongs, fingerpicked guitars (a favorite of Jobs), all of the electricity demanded by the story – sonically and thematically, this is an opera of our times.
