This 90-minute, one-act opera by composer Jake Heggie and librettist Gene Scheer, is based on Terrence McNally’s play, Some Christmas Letters.
The opera tells the story of a famous stage actress, Madeline Mitchell, and her two adult children, Beatrice and Charlie. Set in the Decembers of 1986, 1996, and 2006, Jake Heggie’s opera explores the relationship between mother, son, and daughter and asks the question: “What, and more important who is family?”
