Houston Grand Opera presents Glory Denied
Houston Grand Opera will present Glory Denied, the story of an American family during the turbulent Vietnam War era. This intimate chamber opera by Tom Cipullo based on the book by Tom Philpott tells the true story of America’s longest-held prisoner of war returning home to a country he no longer recognizes. The opera chronicles Colonel Jim Thompson’s suffering in the jungles of Southeast Asia as well as the personal struggles that followed his liberation and repatriation.
Glory Denied is presented under the auspices of HGOco, which connects HGO’s creative resources with the diverse and vibrant Houston community. The production will be conducted by HGO Studio artist Geoffrey Loff and stage directed by Carleen Graham, the director of HGOco.
