I'm mentioning this story because it gives me a chance to bring up Linda Cardellini. She was one of the female actresses involved in the epic gay cowboy love story, BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN. Other than her role on "ER," she doesn't get a whole lot of big time play, so I've got to mention her even if it means bringing this story up.
Reuters is reporting that the New York City Opera commissioned composer Charles Wuorinen to write an opera based on the gay cowboy movie. Man, I keep thinking of another way to put that. How else would people remember BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN? Um... the second movie that Anne Hathaway showed her tits in? Yeah, that's the ticket.
Anyhow, no need to get our collective panties in a bunch just yet. The Brokeback Opera isn't slated to appear on stage until spring of 2013. Just in time for you to educate the kids on what the story's about before packing them up for a cultural trip to the opera!
