Artists in Conversation

In partnership with George Mason University and the City of Fairfax, join the Virginia Opera at Sherwood Community Center for a moderated discussion with Fellow Travelers novelist Thomas Mallon and composer Gregory Spears.

Fellow Travelers is a contemporary opera bout two men who fall in and out of love during the McCarthy Era “Lavender Scare” in the 1950s. Composed by Virginia native Gregory Spears, this poignant and searing opera is a modern masterpiece.

Virginia Opera is hosting a special series of events surrounding the Commonwealth Premiere of Fellow Travelers. See below for details.
