The following description was submitted by the event organizer.
A heartwarming and bittersweet family portrait comes into focus over the course of three Decembers in 1986, 1996 and 2006. Madeline (a Broadway actress) and her adult children face the challenges of secrets, resentment and reconciliation in this illuminating story about the very real complexities of being a family.
“Three Decembers is a profound story about time, family and art. I love stories that span decades, and this opera explores the wounds, secrets and dreams of a family over three Decembers in three different decades. It’s a juicy opera to direct, and I can’t wait to come back to Portland and bring it to life.” – Alan Paul, Stage Director
Performed in English with English captions.
