WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Jake Heggie (Dead Man Walking) and mezzo-soprano Frederica von Stade, reunite for this poignant new chamber opera, Three Decembers based on a play by Terrence McNally. Through operatic ensembles, spoken dialogue, and Broadway-style solo numbers, Heggie and librettist Gene Scheer explore the loving but often strained relationship between a famous actress and her two grown children, one of whom is a gay man whose partner is dying of AIDS.
