Brokeback, the opera?

 Making a movie out of a short story is one thing, but an opera based on a movie that was a short story? The New York City Opera has just announced that it has commissioned an opera to be written based on Annie Proulx’s bestselling short story (and award winning movie) BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN. It will debut in 2013.

For those of you looking for an Annie Proulx hit a little sooner, FINE JUST THE WAY IT IS: Wyoming Stories 3 will be hitting bookshelves September 9th.
