BVA's Ryan MacPherson and Heather Buck Look Forward to 'Brokeback Mountain' Premiere

Madrid's Teatro Real will stage the world premiere of a new opera based on Anne Proulx's 1997 short story "Brokeback Mountain," which was adapted into the 2005 Academy Award-winning Ang Lee film. It will feature a libretto by Proulx and a score by Charles Wuorinen. The cast includes Heather Buck and Ryan MacPherson.

Dutch director Ivo van Hove, who has staged numerous productions at the New York Theatre Workshop (More Stately Mansions, A Streetcar Named Desire, The Little Foxes, The Misanthrope), as well as the Brooklyn Academy of Music with Toneelgroep Amsterdam in recent years (Husbands, Opening Night, Cries and Whispers), will direct the opera that will premiere Jan. 28, 2014, with performances to continue through Feb. 11 in Madrid.
