World-renowned mezzo-soprano Susan Graham leads the cast of Opera San José’s first fully-staged digital production, Jake Heggie’s THREE DECEMBERS, based on Tony Award winning playwright Terrence McNally’s unpublished play “Some Christmas Letters”. Conducted by Resident Conductor Christopher James Ray, and Directed by Resident Director Tara Branham, THREE DECEMBERS follows the captivating story of a famous actress, Madeline Mitchell (Graham), and her two adult children, Beatrice and Charlie, portrayed by celebrated singers, OSJ Resident Artists Maya Kherani and Efraín Solís. This intimate 90-minute chamber opera, spanning three decades (1986, 1996, 2006), brings to mesmerizing life a family’s struggle to understand one another – fears of loss, and a yearning for connection, permeate this “modern masterpiece” (Opera Today), profoundly resonating with our current moment. With a brilliant, witty libretto by Gene Scheer and rich, soaring score by Jake Heggie, THREE DECEMBERS is a fullhearted American opera about family – the ones we are born into, and those we create.
