Event Details

The season continues at the Long Center in February 2022 with the Texas premiere of The
(R)evolution of Steve Jobs, a new take on the life of Apple pioneer Steve Jobs, featuring the innovative music of Mason Bates and the stirring libretto of Mark Campbell. The recording of the original Santa Fe Opera cast won the 2018 Grammy Award for Best Opera Recording. According to Seattle Weekly, “Mason Bates’s score is unfailingly inventive and often gorgeous…”

Making their Austin Opera debuts are baritone John Moore, returning to the title role for which he won wide acclaim at Seattle Opera; Sarah Larsen as Laurene Powell Jobs and Bille Bruley
as Steve Wozniak, both in their role debuts; and Wei Wu, an original member of the Grammy Award-winning cast, who returns to the role of spiritual advisor Kōbun Chino Otogawa. Rounding out the principal cast in the role of Chrisann Brennan is Madison Leonard, who returns to Austin following her triumphant debut as Gilda in 2019’s Rigoletto.

It seems fitting that this groundbreaking new co-production created by Austin Opera, Atlanta Opera, and Lyric Opera of Kansas City will premiere in Austin, Texas, a city simultaneously known as “Silicon Hills” and the “Live Music Capital of the World.” Tomer Zvulun, creator of Austin Opera’s award-winning production of Silent Night, returns to direct. The Austin Opera Orchestra and Chorus will be led by Timothy Myers, the Sarah and Ernest Butler Principal Conductor & Artistic Advisor.
