Townsend Opera
Based on the nov­el by Pulitzer and Nobel-Prize-winning author John Stein­beck, the opera tells the sto­ry of two migrant farm labor­ers mov­ing from place to place in California’s Cen­tral Val­ley look­ing for work dur­ing the Great Depres­sion. Writ­ten in 1969 by renowned Amer­i­can com­poser Carlisle Floyd, the opera fea­tures folk song ref­er­ences, open har­monies and poignant melodies. Writ­ten at a time when most com­posers were deeply entrenched in the exper­i­men­tal­ism of the avant garde, Floyd’s music bucks the trend and pro­vides the lis­ten­er with such tonal and lyric music that the piece has been referred to as one of the first Amer­i­can veris­mo operas in the reper­toire.
