On the life of Steve Jobs Opera has planned in Santa Fe

Since his death in 2011, Apple cofounder Steve Jobs has been the subject of documentaries, books, a film and even a graphic novel.

Are books too long and boring for you? What about films – too little singing, perhaps? In that case, you needn’t suffer through the increasingly tall stack of Steve Jobs media in those styles. Just wait for the opera being produced in Santa Fe, California (outside Los Angeles) right now.

According to Billboardit will “examine Jobs facing his own mortality and circles back to the events and people in his past that shaped and inspired him.”

It’s called “The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs,” and it’s set to debut sometime in 2017. According to the Los Angeles Times, it won’t skimp over the iconic Apple co-founder’s personal life either, including moments with his wife, adoptive father, and the ex-girlfriend who birthed his daughter that he disavowed for the early part of her life.

That journey is the perfect story for an opera, general director Charles MacKay said. “We are delighted to take this journey into the life and legacy of a distinctly American figure through the creative genius of Mason Bates and Mark Campbell,” MacKay said.

General Director of the company Charles MacKay says “We are delighted to take this journey into the life and legacy of a distinctly American figure”, while Bates describes Jobs’ story as “a great intersection of creativity, innovation and human communication.”

Sounds like an easier fit for dramatic singing than, say, coming up with the Mac’s user interface. Then again, knowing Steve Jobs’ temper and perfectionist personality, we imagine there’s plenty to pull from in every scenario.
