Premiered at the Minnesota Opera in 2007, The Grapes of Wrath is a full-scale opera with libretto by Michael Korie, now available in its entirety from Carl Fischer Music. Based on the Pulitzer prize-winning 1939 novel by John Steinbeck, The Grapes of Wrath was named "the great American opera" by Musical America, and Los Angeles Times critic Mark Swed wrote that: "…the greatest glory of the opera is Gordon's ability to musically flesh out the entire 11-member Joad clan…Gordon's other great achievement is to merge Broadway and opera… greatly enhanced by his firm control over ensembles and his sheer love for the operatic voice." A recording of the world premiere production at the Minnesota Opera is available separately from PS Classics (PS-866).
