Livermore Valley Opera’s “Of Mice and Men”

October 7, 2023, 7:30 pm - October 15, 2023, 2:00 pm

The National Steinbeck Center is proud to partner with the Livermore Valley Opera as they present Of Mice and Men. Carlisle Floyd, adapts to the operatic stage Nobel Prize winning John Steinbeck’s powerful novella detailing the story of two displaced migrant ranch workers in California during the Great Depression. Their dream of owning their own land one day ends instead in tragedy. The drama and powerful music will grip your heartstrings and the opera’s plea for compassion and hope is as timely now as when John Steinbeck wrote his novella in 1935. In the opinion of the late composer himself, this is his greatest operatic achievement.

Pre-opera archival showing by the National Steinbeck Center and talk by the Livermore Valley Opera will be held one hour before each performance

Sung in English with English supertitles

Tickets available online or at the Bankhead Theater Box Office 925-373-6800
