Opera Company of Middlebury - 20th season - presents a Vermont Premiere
Glory Denied is a poignant saga that takes place during the Vietnam War, based on the true story of Colonel Jim Thompson, America’s longest-held prisoner of war.
This profoundly moving story and soaring score by one of America’s leading classical voice composers, Tom Cipullo, tells Thompson’s story through younger and older versions of Thompson and his wife, Alyce, who traverse this complex emotional landscape through hope, despair, love, hate, courage, and forgiveness.
Peter Kendall Clark, Brandon Snook, Meredith Lustig and Megan Pachecano round out our cast for this opera in two acts. Pre-show talk at 6:30pm at the Memorial Baptist Church.
