The opera, based on the Annie Proulx short story and best movie EVER, opens tonight in Madrid. Here, 75-year-old American composer Charles Wuorinen talks about retooling the tragic love story into an opera. YouTube commenters seem worried that the complex operatic styling will seem too much at odds with the rural – and decidedly All-American – love story. But that’s what they said about Porgy and Bess, so I’m not going to worry. I think it looks GAYMAZING.
