"L" is loges

As Brokies watch the loges fill before the first performance of "Brokeback Mountain" the opera, they'll be thinking fondly (and wistfully) of Santaolalla's music.

Should Macedonian opera houses choose to have "Brokeback Mountain" the opera sung in the vernacular, Jack Twist might tell Ennis,
"Би сакала да знам како да го затворите."

Two operas presented in January 2014 at Madrid's Teatro Real represent different periods of music, but both tell the stories of legendary lovers:  Tristan und Isolde and Brokeback Mountain.

The night before the singing started, Brokies dined on Spanish delicacies such as Salmorejo con Jamon y Huevo Cocido at Casa Patas in old Madrid.

The performers who sang Ennis and Jack in the opera "Brokeback Mountain" had to use all their technical weaponry to survive the 2-hour assault on their vocal cords.
