France's Opéra de Lyon is set to begin performing a multimedia opera that combines the history of former Apple CEO Steve Jobs with the story of Shakespeare’s 1599 play Henry V.
Written by German composer Roland Auzet, "Steve Five (King Different)" pulls its content from Walter Isaacson’s best-selling Steve Jobs biography and explores the parallels between two kings – one from Silicon Valley and the other from England – who confronted reality through invention.
Via Google Translate:
The book is composed of two biographies, two routes, close and yet separated by five centuries: two words, two ways to confront reality by inventing. Steve Jobs painted what Shakespeare called "the brightest heaven of invention" and the fate of Silicon Valley faces the epic Henry V.
The opera, which includes includes rap and classical orchestra, spoken and sung opera, and poetry, will be performed for the first time on Friday, March 14 at the Théâtre de la Renaissance in Lyon, France. It will also have three subsequent showings on March 15, 17, and 18.

What about Ballmer on Ice? Is that still a thing?
Shall think themselves accursd they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon January 24th!
