This three hankie opera will peel back decades of misguided love, secrets, resentment and unacknowledged family truths in this intimate chamber opera by Jake Heggie, starring world-renowned mezzo-soprano Denyce Graves.
We peek in on Madeline, the Broadway star and her two grown children over three Christmas Holidays to discover them wrapped ever tighter in conflict and affection. A story of a family facing success and failure, THREE DECEMBERS is a beautifully poignant and heart wrenching work. Sung in English with English supertitles.
The opera will be conducted by Robert Wood and stage by Kentucky Opera General Director David Roth, leading a production design team from Actors Theatre of Louisville.
THREE DECEMBERS is sponsored by: Claudia W. Muir, Mr. & Mrs. Luis E. Prada, Rev. Alfred R. Shands, III along with the Conductor sponsor: Stock Yards Bank.
