Ricky Ian Gordon’s The Grapes of Wrath Takes Alaska by Storm!

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 2011 … Ricky Ian Gordon’s The Grapes of Wrath had its Pacific Northwest premiere tonight before a SOLD OUT audience in Anchorage, Alaska! Nearly 2000 people were swept away by the majestic power of The Grapes of Wrath.

According to Mike Dunham, Arts Critic with the Anchorage Daily News, “it was probably the most impressive production yet for Anchorage Opera from a purely sonic standpoint.” Also, for numerous ‘Sourdoughs’ (long-time Alaskans) who attended the concert, The Grapes of Wrath was “the best premiere of a new opera in Alaskan history.” And, “the future of Opera is very promising as long as we have conductors like Sara Jobin and composers like Ricky Ian Gordon who possess extraordinary artistic intellectualism and popular sensitivity.”
