Of Mice and Men
Composer: Carlisle Floyd

Librettist: Floyd aft. Steinbeck
Synopsis
The opera is faithful to Steinbeck's story: Two itinerant workers, George (responsible and intelligent), and Lennie (large and somewhat retarded), travel though California looking for work. Although the two men are an odd couple, they share a common dream of someday owning their own land and farm. At their new job, Lennie and George are close to raising enough money to realize their dream after Candy, an old cripple, offers to pitch in his savings. Soon they will have enough money, if only Lennie can keep away from the mean, belligerent boss, Curley, and from Curley's flirtatious wife. Curley's wife seductively provokes Lennie into stroking her hair, then screams in a sudden panic. Lennie innocently tries to stifle her screams and inadvertently breaks her neck. Lennie and George escape, with Curley's men in pursuit. George realizes he must kill Lennie to prevent him from being lynched by Curley's men. In the final scene, he shoots Lennie in the head.
