Queer Opera

Check out Phil Gambone's review of this new book, QUEER OPERA by Andrew Sutherland, in the March-April 2024 G&LR, The Gay & Lesbian Review.  The book is divided into seven chapters, each of which addresses a particular theme that has generated the creation of queer operas. The seventh chapter, Homoerotic Awakening, features Patience and Sarah, by Paula M. Kimper and Wende Persons (1998).

"Paula Kimper's opera Patience and Sarah (1998) marked the end of a relatively lengthy quiet period for queer opera." page 244
