The world still awaits the unveiling of "Brokeback Mountain" the opera, in which Ennis del Mar sings the great aria, "If you cannot fix it, then you got to stand it."

For all the Brokies who can't go to Madrid, it would be great if there was a broadcasting of the opera, so they could hear the music by Wuorinen and the songs by Proulx.

The world still awaits the unveiling of "Brokeback Mountain" the opera, in which Jack Twist sings the brash arioso, "Water Walkin' Jesus," accompanied by an offstage descant of lupine coloratura.

It'll be interesting to see how the singers will go about embodying the emotions of Ennis and Jack in the opera.

Should German opera houses choose to have "Brokeback Mountain" the opera sung in the vernacular, Jack Twist might tell Ennis,
"Ich wünschte, ich wüsste, wie man Sie verlassen."

"Vorrei che sapere come si smettere."
