An opera by Gregory Spears

Based on the 2007 novel “Fellow Travelers” by Thomas Mallon
Developed and Co-Commissioned by G. Sterling Zinsmeyer and Cincinnati Opera
This story of a forbidden love affair between two men in 1950s McCarthy-era Washington D.C., Fellow Travelers is a searing opera infused with political drama, unexpected humor, and sincere heartbreak. A chance encounter between recent college graduate Timothy Laughlin and handsome State Department official Hawkins Fuller results in Tim’s first job—and his first love affair with a man. As McCarthy mounts a desperate bid for power and internal investigations focus on removing “sexual subversives” in the government, Tim and Fuller find it increasingly dangerous to navigate their double lives.
Sung in English with English captions projected above the stage.
