Cincinnati Opera and CCM Opera’s joint Opera Fusion: New Works program presents excerpts from Castor and Patience with music by Gregory Spears (composer of Fellow Travelers) and a libretto by Pulitzer Prize-winning poet and former U.S. poet laureate Tracy K. Smith. The new work tells the story of African American cousins who find themselves at odds over the fate of a historic parcel of land they have inherited in the American South. Castor and Patience has been commissioned by Cincinnati Opera in honor of the company’s 100th anniversary and will receive its world premiere during the 2020 Season.
