When you think about the opera, classics are probably the first thing to come to mind. You might hear “Carmen,” “The Magic Flute,” or the “Barber of Seville” in your head. But now Steve Jobs — yes, that Steve Jobs — is the subject of a new show called “The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs.” The opera is a Grammy-award winner and it focuses on the most important memories in the famously eventful life of the Apple co-founder, leading up to his death in 2011. You can catch “The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs” at the Seattle Opera, Feb. 23 through March 9.
