SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) – The Santa Fe Opera’s 2017 season will include a world premiere, three new productions for the company and a collection of works spanning 300 years.

The opera’s general manager Charles MacKay announced the lineup at a news conference Wednesday.

The 2017 season will run June 30 through Aug. 26 and will open with “Die Fledermaus,” which was last performed by the company in 1992.

Most anticipated in the 2017 season is the world premiere of “the Revolution of Steve Jobs.” According to the opera, the production will examine Jobs facing his own mortality and circles back to the events and people in his past that shaped and inspired him.

Other operas in the 2017 season will be “Lucia di Lammermoor,” ”The Golden Cockerel” and “Alcina.”
