About Of Mice and Men:
The praise just keeps coming for award-winning tenor Anthony Dean Griffey. Now, at last, he makes his Melbourne debut in a signature role, Lennie, in Carlisle Floyd’s Of Mice and Men.
George and Lennie are migrant farmhands during the Great Depression. Their only home is a communal bunkhouse under the lonely prairie skies. But they are different to their fellow workers. They have a plan, a dream of buying a farm and making a life. If, that is, George can keep Lennie, who has the strength of a giant, but the mind of a child, out of trouble...
Legendary film director Bruce Beresford continues his exploration of New World opera with the Australian premiere of Of Mice and Men, based on John Steinbeck’s 1937 novella.
Discover the rich humanity and instantly accessible songlines of one of America’s most revered composers, Carlisle Floyd, in this important new production.
