Tech-cerpt: The (R)evo­lu­tion of Steve Jobs teaser

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

Bari­tone Jared By­bee, ac­com­pa­nied by con­duc­tor Robert Tweten, brings a taste of Santa Fe Opera to El Museo Cul­tural de Santa Fe (555 Camino de la Fa­milia, 505-992-0591) with an ex­cerpt of The (R)evo­lu­tion of

Steve Jobs by com­poser Ma­son Bates and li­bret­tist Mark Camp­bell. The opera, which has its premiere at SFO on July 22, looks at the life of the Ap­ple co-founder, weav­ing back and forth through time to present a por­trait of an en­tre­pre­neur who cre­ated one of the world’s most suc­cess­ful tech com­pa­nies and rev­o­lu­tion­ized the world but who em­bod­ied the di­chotomies of cru­elty and com­pas­sion, as well as vi­sion­ary bril­liance, cold cal­cu­la­tion, and busi­ness savvy. The mu­sic is fol­lowed by a talk with SFO’s cho­rus mas­ter Su­sanne She­ston. The free event is held in con­junc­tion with Cur­rents New Me­dia and takes place at 7 p.m. on Satur­day, June 24. — Michael Abatemarco
