What to Expect at This Event

Step back into the tumultuous corridors of power during the McCarthy era with Opera Parallele‘s captivating production of Fellow Travelers at Presidio Theatre 

Adapted from Thomas Mallon’s acclaimed novel of the same name, this West Coast premiere offers audiences a mesmerizing blend of tender romance and political intrigue that resonates with timeless relevance. 

Composer Gregory Spears and librettist Greg Pierce have meticulously crafted an opera that delves into the complexities of love and politics against the backdrop of the Lavender Scare. Set in an era of paranoia and persecution, Fellow Travelers navigates the lives of individuals grappling with forbidden love under government scrutiny. 

Fellow Travelers transcends the boundaries of opera, serving as a poignant testament to the resilience of love amidst adversity. As audiences are transported back in time, they are prompted to contemplate the enduring power of love to transcend even the darkest of times.
