Fellow Travelers

Boston Lyric Opera

An Opera by Gregory Spears
Libretto by Greg Pierce
Based on the 2007 novel Fellow Travelers by Thomas Mallon
Sung in English with English surtitles

Against a backdrop of 1950s paranoia in Washington, D.C., two men are swept into a passionate love affair, just as Senator McCarthy ratchets up his hunt for “sexual subversives” in the government. Based on the best-selling book by Thomas Mallon, Fellow Travelers is both a story of the heart and a taut political thriller, creating an instant contemporary classic.
