Story/Teller Arts: Ricky Ian Gordon on Seeing Through: A Chronicle of Sex, Drugs, and Opera with Anthony Roth Costanzo

Ricky Ian Gordon, one of the greatest American composers of this generation, is known for his incredible compositions for the stage, including 27, My Life with Albertine, and his opera adaptation of The Grapes of Wrath. The Center for Fiction is thrilled to welcome Gordon to celebrate his memoir Seeing Through: A Chronicle of Sex, Drugs, and Opera. The book is an intimate and compelling testament to all he has endured, from addiction to the devastation of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Written with warmth and humor, Gordon shares the story of a remarkable life, guided by music through its sorrows. Grammy Award-winning countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo joins Gordon for an evening of conversation, celebration, and music.
