You’re invited to a special evening celebrating the upcoming Pittsburgh Opera premiere of Glory Denied, the amazing true story of Colonel Jim Thompson, America’s longest-held POW. Thompson endured nine years of brutal captivity in the jungles of southeast Asia during the Vietnam War, and returned home to a very different life than the one he left.
Join Pittsburgh Opera at Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall & Museum for a musical preview, lively discussion about the opera’s story and music, and insights on the Vietnam War and POW experience. Speakers will include members of the opera’s cast and artistic team and military experts. You can mingle with the panelists over refreshments as well.
