“Brokeback Mountain” is being turned into an opera by New York City Opera. You know, because it’s not gay enough. A spokesbitch for the opera house said they have commissioned composer Charles Wuorinen to write an opera based on Annie Proulx’s short story. It will premiere in 2013.
Charles Wuorinen issued this statement to Reuters: “Ever since encountering Annie Proulx’s extraordinary story I have wanted to make an opera on it, and it gives me great joy that Gerard Mortier and New York City Opera have given me the opportunity to do so.”
I’m okay with this as long as they get Placido Domingo and Paul Potts to star. Imagine those two sexy beasts dressed as cowboys and licking up on each other. Raw sex on the stage! They would have to hand out baby wipes and condoms at the door.
