The Return of One Sentence Reviews: "Glory Denied"


1 comment

Watching Opera Memphis' minimal but mighty production of Tom Cipullo's Viet Nam-era one act, Glory Denied,  is like being clobbered by angels and dumped in a freezing river of 1970's pop culture. 

This video from the Fort Wayne Opera features Michael Mayes as Co. Jim Thompson, America's longest serving Prisoner of War. It's a role he's reviving for the Midtown Opera Festival. 

Glory Denied is just one of many shows to explore at the Midtown Opera Festival.
