Santa Fe Opera kicks off the 2022 Opera Series with Mason Bates’ imaginative work "The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs" (June 18).

Heralded as “a triumph” (Washington Post), and “a winning opera” (Los Angeles Times), Bates’ score combines electronics and operatic orchestration to tell a fascinating story about the complicated man behind the rise of a tech giant.
