By Joel Puckett, libretto by Eric Simonson, Commissioned by MN Opera’s New Works Initiative.
Shoeless Joe and the 1919 Black Sox Scandal, one of the most notorious scandals in American history, comes to life in this new, major league opera. The 1919 Chicago White Sox were arguably the best team in the game, but they were also the most poorly paid, always at odds with their penny-pinching owner. Resentment, revenge, and ambition gone awry motivate the eight players to conspire with gamblers and fix the World Series. Featuring a lyrical, poetic score and legendary figures from baseball, this is a tale of epic proportions about betting against the establishment, all set against the backdrop of America’s favorite pastime.
