Music by Joel Puckett | Libretto by Eric Simonson

Commissioned by MN Opera as part of its New Works Initiative

Baseball’s Greatest Scandal

One of the most notorious scandals in American history comes to life in this new major league opera. The 1919 Chicago White Sox were arguably the best team in the game, but they were also the most poorly paid, always at odds with their penny-pinching owner. Resentment, revenge, and ambition gone awry motivate eight players to conspire with gamblers and fix the World Series. Featuring a lyrical, poetic score and legendary figures from baseball, The Fix is a tale of epic proportions about betting against the establishment, all set against the backdrop of America’s favorite pastime.
