“Gordon's lyrical gift shines through every page of the score, a melting pot of musical Americana that incorporates blues, jazz, country fiddling, and more.” –Chicago Tribune

When the Dust Bowl sweeps across Oklahoma, the Joad family sets out for a new life in California. But the promised land isn’t all it seems. In the face of countless obstacles, can the American dream survive? Both heartbreaking and uplifting, this acclaimed opera vividly captures all the beauty of John Steinbeck’s best-selling novel.

Baritone Tobias Greenhalgh is Tom Joad, with sopranos Deanna Breiwick as Rosasharn and Katharine Goeldner as Ma Joad.
