I hear you. And this is definitely part of what our own internal discourse has been at Seattle Opera. One of the lobby display panels is actually going to bear the headline: "Does Steve Jobs Deserve to Have His Story Told and Retold?"

“If you’re an operagoer who’s into new ideas or Wagnerian leitmotifs, you will be excited by this music (composed by Mason Bates). I hear Sondheim. I hear John Williams. This music is dense when it needs to be, it jams when it needs to. It’s so good.” - John Moore

Childhood wonderment is important to me. One of the changes we’ve made for this Seattle Opera version is the 10-year-old Steve Jobs makes more appearances than in the work’s previous iterations. - Kevin Newbury, Director

Is this opera a cautionary tale? John Moore: “Time is precious. You don’t know the hour it’s all going to come crashing down. Steve shows us how he fails at love, how he fails at business...we all yearn to be seen and to be loved.”

This opera is not a re-creation of previous (R)evolution of Steve Jobs productions. I’m directing based on what’s inspiring me, what’s inspiring John Moore, how we’re feeling, what podcast I’m listening to...it’s a completely new show.” - Director Kevin Newbury

Everything in this opera is actually based on a real event, from the calligraphy class Jobs took to when he dropped acid in the field with Chrisann Brennan.

Hey Rebecca! It’s my understanding, though I will look more into this, that the microphones are needed because of the electronic music inherent in Mason Bates’ composition. - Gabrielle G., Communications & Public Engagement Manager
