World premiere! This highly anticipated new opera centers on two African American cousins who find themselves at odds over the fate of a historic parcel of land they have inherited in the American South.

A long overdue family reunion finds two African American cousins at odds over the fate of a historic parcel of land they have inherited in the American South. Deeply relevant to ongoing calls for racial justice, Castor and Patience probes historical and continuing obstacles to Black land ownership in the United States. With powerful, soaring music by Gregory Spears, composer of our acclaimed 2016 commission Fellow Travelers, and an original libretto by Pulitzer Prize-winner and former U.S. poet laureate Tracy K. Smith, this timeless and topical premiere is the buzz of the opera world.
