Notes and Editorial Reviews

This extensive release is a live recording from the critically acclaimed world premiere production of Fellow Travelers produced by Cincinnati Opera with a score by Gregory Spears and libretto by Greg Pierce. Adapted from Thomas Mallon’s novel and directed by Kevin Newbury, the opera was performed by a cast of exciting young singers joined by the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and conducted by Mark Gibson. At the height of the McCarthy era in 1950s Washington, D.C., recent college grad Timothy Laughlin is eager to join the crusade against communism. A chance encounter with handsome State Department official Hawkins Fuller leads to Tim’s first job—and his first love affair. Drawn into a maelstrom of deceit, Tim struggles to reconcile his Read more political convictions and his forbidden love for Fuller—an entanglement that will end in a stunning act of betrayal.
