Glory Denied

Monday, November 6, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Presented as a part of the Veterans Songbook Project, GLORY DENIED is the story of an American family during the turbulent Vietnam War era. America’s longest-held prisoner of war returns home to a country he no longer recognizes. This intimate chamber opera chronicles Colonel Jim Thompson’s suffering in the jungles of southeast Asia through to the personal struggles that followed his liberation and repatriation.

“From hope to despair, from love to hatred to forgiveness, the dramatic tension was relentless.” —Opera News

“…a powerfully realistic thriller and an unabashedly honest commentary on the America of the 1960s and ’70s.”—Fort Worth Weekly
