Three Decembers

Music by Jake Heggie

Libretto by Gene Scheer after Terrence McNally

” . . . a touchingly intimate exploration of family dynamics . . . immediately engaging and constantly energetic; Heggie fears neither dissonance nor lyricism, and the frequent pungency in his writing gives way to a sheer beauty.” – Front Row/D Magazine (Dallas)

” . . . this approachable, ultimately uplifting story of aging Broadway actress Madeline and her two adult children, Charlie and Beatrice, who struggle to come to terms with each other’s lives and the tough challenges each has faced, is achingly human and real.” – The Denver Post
