Glory Denied

Keegan Theatre
1742 Church Street, NW Washington

Music and Libretto by Tom Cipullo. Based on the true oral history by Tom Philpott. Floyd "Jim" Thompson was held for nine years in Vietnam, his wife Alyce unsure if he was alive. When he was released, he returned to a very different country - and a very different marriage. Glory Denied is a deeply compelling contemporary opera with achingly beautiful music. Capt. Floyd "Jim" Thompson was shot down over Vietnam on March 26, 1964. He was captured by the Viet Cong, and held for nine years; his wife Alyce was uncertain if he was alive. Faced with the prospect of raising their four children alone, she decided to move on, and settled down with another man. When Thompson returned, his long-held vision of Alyce was crushed, and his family's lives were thrown into turmoil. Based on the oral history by Tom Philpott, the opera Glory Denied tells the true story of Jim and Alyce - their relationship, their choices, their joys, their disillusionment.
