The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs

Discover The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs

Music by Mason Bates / Libretto by Mark Campbell

“The audience let out a whoop as soon as the music ended, and the curtain calls were downright raucous.”
- The Washington Post

Tech visionary. Business mogul. A charismatic genius who changed the way the world communicated. Yet, by most accounts, Steve Jobs was also an egocentric control freak who estranged almost everyone close to him.

Turn off your phones, and take your seat for the opera that’s had the music world talking since last year’s world premiere in Santa Fe. A coproducer, the Jacobs School of Music presents this mesmerizing portrait of a man who was truly a legend in his own time.

In English with English supertitles.

New production. A Jacobs School of Music coproduction with the Santa Fe Opera, Seattle Opera, and San Francisco Opera.

Student seat pricing as low as $6 with subscription, adult seat pricing as low as $11 with subscription
