Glory Denied by Tom Cipullo 2017


 

Glory Denied by Tom Cipullo

February 10th through February 18th

Anchorage Opera is 55 and So Alive!

The Alaska premiere of the contemporary opera Glory Denied by Tom Cipullo. Based on a book of the same name, with a foreword written by Senator John McCain, this opera relates the poignant story of Colonel Jim Thompson, America’s longest-held POW (1964-1973), the wrenching agonies faced by his family, and the larger story of a nation divided during the Vietnam era. After being a prisoner for almost a decade, Thompson returns home to find a son he has never met, a wife that has moved on, a nation that has changed beyond recognition, and he struggles to find his bearings in a society he fought to defend. You’ll be moved to tears and gain a greater appreciation of the sacrifices made by those who serve in our armed forces.


Glory Denied by Tom Cipullo is presented by Anchorage Opera.
