Destination Retrograde: A Reflection on "Fellow Travelers"
Sunday, October 24 at 3:00pm
Coral Gables Congregational United Church of Christ, Main Sanctuary 3010 De Soto Boulevard, Coral Gables, FL
Join the Steven J. Green School of International and Public Affairs, Florida Grand Opera, and Coral Gables Congregational United Church of Christ for a very special program that explores the piercing themes of Gregory Spear's highly praised opera, Fellow Travelers (based on the best-selling 2007 novel by Thomas Mallon). A spoken word program set against Spears’ powerful music, “Destination Retrograde” explores the opera’s tragic story of a love affair between two young men at the height of the Red and Lavender Scares in the 1950s while highlighting the underlying and heartbreakingly timely topics of disinformation, the relationship between law and morality, and the dangers of a tyranny of the majority.
