Rediscovering The Universe Within

Many of us wanted to change the world. Steve Jobs did. A masterful marketer who decried materialism, Jobs led a binary life — magnetic and unapproachable, empathetic and cruel, meditative and restless. He helped connect us all while building a firewall around his own emotions. Jobs’ late-life search for his inner truth is at the heart of this world premiere. Composer Mason Bates‘ music blends expressive electronics, including guitar, with rich opera orchestration. Librettist – Mark Campbell


“Everyone here has the sense that right now is one of those moments when we are influencing the future.”

Steve Jobs
