  Wuorinen to compose Brokeback Mountain Opera  CT News at 09:42 on 10 June 2008
 

The news that many thought was a hoax turns out to be true - New York City Opera has indeed commissioned Charles Wuorinen to compose what Alex Ross famously dubbed a 'Gay 12-tone opera' - an opera based on Brokeback Mountain, the 1997 short story by Annie Proulx that became the basis for a 2005 movie that won three Academy Awards. The story is a cowboy romance about two ranch-hand buddies who start a homosexual affair when they meet on the fictional mountain in 1963.
