Three Decembers

Graham gives a "Blazing performance…a knockout!" (San Francisco Chronicle) International superstar Susan Graham takes the lead role in Opera San José's filmed production of Jake Heggie's THREE DECEMBERS. Hailed as * "a major achievement"* (Musical America) and "a holiday miracle" *(SF Classical Voice), this intimate 90-minute operatic drama brings to mesmerizing life a family's struggle to connect over three tumultuous decades, as long-held secrets come to light. With plenty of musical theatre razzle-dazzle, Three Decembers is a fullhearted American opera about family - the ones we are born into, and those we create. With a brilliant, witty libretto by Gene Scheer and rich, soaring orchestration by Jake Heggie, this vibrant look at family dynamics reunites world-famed mezzo-soprano Graham with composer Jake Heggie (who created the role of Sister Helen in Dead Man Walking especially for her), joined by OSJ Resident Artists soprano Maya Kherani and baritone Efraín Solís in a fully-staged, handsomely filmed production. Streamed on demand, tickets make an excellent gift for any theatre or music lover. Opera San José's Three Decembers is lovingly dedicated to the memory of Terrance McNally.
