“…the very hallmark of an intense, engaging and moving evening” – STAGE AND CINEMA
“A masterpiece” – OPERA TODAY
Del Sol joins forces with acclaimed baritone Jesse Blumberg in this moving performance of composer Ricky Ian Gordon‘s mini-opera Green Sneakers. Green Sneakers is a raw, intensely personal and intimate work of art written by the award winning composer after the AIDS-related death of his partner, Jeffery Grossi.
The piece tells the story of the couple’s final few months together from the day Grossi buys a pair of sneakers until the moment of his death. It is a production that peers into the very soul, leaving behind a transformed and uplifted audience with each live performance.
