Based on a book by Tom Philpott, Glory Denied tells the true story of Col. Jim Thompson, America’s longest-held prisoner of war. The story chronicles Jim’s life for nine years as a captured soldier during the Vietnam War and the aftermath that followed his return home.
An opera that explores family relationships during a difficult time in our nation’s history, Glory Denied is a compelling and heart-wrenching story of loss, hope, and one man’s will to survive.
