THE (R)EVOLUTION OF STEVE JOBS
Presented by The Atlanta Opera in partnership with ArtsBridge Foundation
DAYTIME FIELD TRIP FOR STUDENTS (500 Tickets | 100 ticket limit per group)
Join The Atlanta Opera for a special FREE field trip presentation of Composer Mason Bates and Librettist Mark Campbell’s The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs. Apple Computer founder Steve Jobs, one of the most influential people of the modern age, is transformed into a dramatic character in this compelling 2017 opera. As the character Jobs looks back on a life dappled by dizzying heights and crushing disappointments, this charismatic, hard-driving visionary confronts the complexities of life and death. Cast in an appealing electro-acoustic soundscape generated by Mac laptop (of course) and live musicians, The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs cycles through key moments in his lifelong–and futile–pursuit of perfection and control over everything that matters to him. A partnership with the ArtsBridge Foundation, the full-length opera will be performed onstage with sets, costumes, and orchestra.
Content Advisory: The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs explores the life of the controversial tech pioneer Steve Jobs and how his journey from hippie dropout to embattled mogul turns out to be a quest for spiritual wisdom and human connection.
