Clint Borzoni and Edward Ficklin’s Antinous and Hadrian tells the compelling story of the second century Roman emperor Hadrian and his love for the Greek youth Antinous {an-ti’-no-uhs}. It examines the mystery behind the tragic death of the young Antinous. Upon his death, the distraught Emperor declared his beloved a god. Drawing on both historical sources and dramatic imagination, Clint and Eddy have crafted a new work in the grand opera tradition.

Please join operamission and our impressive cast and orchestra for this exceptional event.
