Product Description
World premiere recording of Green Sneakers, a superb mini-opera by Ian Gordon, one of contemporary musical theater's most innovative composers. This is a brand new work that is an exploration of love, loss and survival, a personal and intimate work written in search of solace from grief after the loss of his partner, Jeffrey Grossi, to AIDS, and following their last few months together. Hailed as “a triumph”, ”superb mini-opera”, “a masterpiece” by Opera Today, American Record Guide and others, every live performance of the piece becomes a cathartic experience and leaves the listener transformed and uplifted. The original cast of the production is the superb Miami String Quartet and the rising star of opera and recital stage baritone Jesse Blumberg.
