Austin Opera continues its long-standing commitment to American and English-language opera with Carlisle Floyd’s operatic rendition of John Steinbeck’s iconic novella, Of Mice and Men, foundational support provided by the Georgia B. Lucas Foundation.

Based on John Steinbeck’s novella “Of Mice and Men,” this riveting American opera is a faithful retelling of one of America’s most celebrated works of literature. Carlisle Floyd vividly captures the lives of the characters, the feel of the era, the bunkhouse, the depressed economy, and Lennie’s tragic story.

Of Mice and Men features the Austin Opera Chorus and the Austin Opera Orchestra. An Opera in three acts, sung in English with lyrics projected above the stage.

This broadcast is part of KMFA's Listen Local series. This project is supported in part by the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department, the Still Water Foundation, Estes Audiology Hearing Centers, and Tito's Handmade Vodka.
