Lauderhill Performing Arts Center
FGO heads north for the third opera of the season to the Lauderhill Center for the Performing Arts. Based on the best-selling novel by Thomas Mallon, Fellow Travelers by Gregory Spears is both a story of the heart and a taut political thriller, creating an instant contemporary classic. Against a backdrop of 1950s paranoia in Washington, D.C., Fellow Travelers follows the lives of aspiring young journalist Timothy Laughlin and handsome State Department official Hawkins Fuller, who are swept into a passionate love affair, just as Senator McCarthy begins his hunt for “sexual subversives” in the government. As his involvement deepens, Tim struggles to come to terms with his political convictions, religious beliefs, and his love for Fuller–an entanglement that ends in a stunning act of betrayal. FGO is pleased to welcome three singers, all making their debuts with the company. Miami native, tenor Andres Acosta, will sing the role of Timothy McLaughlin, a recent college graduate who is seeking a job on the “Hill.” New Zealand-born baritone Haleigh Adams will be performing the role of State Department Official, Hawkins Fuller. Sarasota Florida native, soprano Adelaide Boedecker, will be portraying the role of Hawkins’ best friend and assistant, Mary Johnson.
