I Hear Standing Room Only - It's Sold Out!according to Lesbilicious :
Brokeback Mountain will soon become an Opera! I mean how awesome is that?! I'm absolutely flabbergasted, wish I would have thought of it and had the means to produce it.
The New York City Opera has commissioned the work, which is based on both the film, directed by Ang Lee, and the short story by Annie Proulx that the film is based on. The opera will premiere in the Spring of 2013.
