Breaking: First news of Breaking Bad, the opera…main
The New York-based composer-conductor-headline-catcher Sung Jin Hong is writing an opera based on the hit TV series and a sonnet by Shelley.
That’s what he announces on his website.
How will I compose this mini-opera? Should I consider having specific characters from the drama? How about setting my music to unforgettable moments from the show? Should I focus instead on Shelley’s sonnet, devoted to a single metaphor for the pride and the unrelenting pursuit for power? It is tempting to fully dive into the universe of Breaking Bad and embrace its elements, depicting moral chaos.
