Presented by the University of Iowa Opera Theatre Program

Music by Jake Heggie
Libretto by Gene Scheer
Based on an original play by Terrence McNally

Three Decembers is a modern masterpiece with a brilliant libretto by Gene Scheer and a soaring musical score by Jake Heggie that explores the truth, lies, resentments, and ultimately the hopes of a trio of characters over the course of three decades. With profound storytelling that bares the souls of each character, this chamber opera is an intimate meditation about family- the ones we are born into and those we create.
