Mason Bates takes you inside the life and legacy of one of the greatest minds of the digital age in The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs, an opera exploring the intersections of technology, spirituality, and ambition.
The Seattle Opera just wrapped up its production of the Grammy Award-winning work last weekend, but you’ve still got one more chance to hear it: this Saturday, Classical KING FM 98.1 is broadcasting a live recording of the performance. Tune in on the radio or online from anywhere in the world this Saturday, March 16 at 8pm PT.
And in the meantime, step behind the scenes in this special crossover episode of Classical Classroom and the Seattle Opera Podcast! Second Inversion host Dacia Clay talks with Mason Bates about the place where classical music meets technology—and why this distinctly 21st century story lends itself to an operatic retelling.
For more backstage coverage (including costumes, libretto, technology, and more), check out the Seattle Opera Podcast, hosted by Seattle Opera dramaturg Jonathan Dean.
