Because films and a musical weren't enough, the life of Steve Jobs is now an opera too

An opera about the life of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs will open this weekend (22 July), telling the story of the man behind the iMac, iPod, iPhone and iPad.

Called The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs, the opera is two years in the making and will be shown by The Santa Fe Opera in New Mexico, US.

Kicking off on Saturday, the opera will then be performed on four dates across August.

Ticket range from $114 to $310 (£88 to £239).

The 19-scene opera begins with the launch of the original iPhone in January, 2007 and carves a path both backwards and forwards through Jobs' well-told career.

Described as very "nonlinear", the opera "leaps around in time" to include scenes from Jobs' creation of the Apple I, his relationship with Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, and his brief time at university.
