The Egyptian Theatre
Performances are April 27, 28 & 29 at 7:30pm.

NOTE: Glory Denied contains strong Language and simulated violence through music.

Tom Cipullo's chamber opera Glory Denied has met with considerable success and garnered critical acclaim. The opera, based on the oral history by journalist Tom Philpott, tells the true story of Colonel Jim Thompson, an American soldier held as a prisoner of war in Vietnam from 1964-73. The story deals not only with Thompson's suffering in the jungles of southeast Asia, but also chronicles the personal struggles that followed his liberation and repatriation. Written for a cast of four (two sopranos, a tenor, and a baritone), the opera will be performed with reduced orchestra conducted by Opera Idaho Principal Conductor and Artistic Adviser Steve Crawford.
