“27” is the witty contemporary work by composer Ricky Ian Gordon and Librettist Royce Vavrek about the lives of American ex-pats Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas and the legendary salons they hosted at 27 rue de Fleurus in Paris. Stein draws in other artistic luminaries of the 20th Century, Ernest Hemmingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald. The opera, which debuted in 2014, has a cast of five who perform all the roles in five short acts. This opera will be produced in partnership with Cockroach Theatre at its home theatre in Art Square.
