Set in the month of December in the years 1986, 1996, and 2006, Three Decembers tells the story of a famous actress, Madeline, and her two adult children as they struggle to know and love each other. It’s a universal story about the family we wish for and the family we wind up with.
Jake Heggie’s two-act chamber opera is based on an unpublished play, Some Christmas Letters, by Terrence McNally; libretto by Gene Scheer. The role of Maddie was created for Frederica von Stade.
And don’t miss our wonderful Gala Dinner with Frederica von Stade and the cast of Three Decembers on April 29th, 2017. Tickets and information can be found HERE.
