The Incredibly Under-Adapted Life of Steve Jobs Will Be the Focus of an Upcoming Opera
In case the several films, books, and documentaries already made about the life of Steve Jobs haven’t quite satisfied your need for a closer look at the iconic Apple CEO and cofounder, you have yet another chance—this time, in the form of musical theater!
That’s right, following news that James Bond: The Musical is on the way, The Hollywood Reporter shares news that The Revolution of Steve Jobs opera will premiere during Santa Fe Opera’s 2017 season. According to opera leadership, the production will be written by composer Mason Bates and librettist Mark Campbell. If you have to look up what a “librettist” is, don’t feel bad. I did too.
According to THR, the opera “will examine Jobs facing his own mortality and circles back to the events and people in his past that shaped and inspired him.” Sounds really unique!
