Of Course They Did.

The New York City Opera has commissioned composer Charles Wuorinen to compose an opera based on Brokeback Mountain. The opera will premiere in the Spring of 2009.

My only response is, if they could make an opera out of "Kiss of the Spider Woman" than I suppose you can put anything to music.

Think of it as a gayer, more rustic version of "La Boheme" or "Madame Butterfly."
