Houston Grand Opera performs “Glory Denied” by Tom Cipullo

On November 6 and 9, Houston Grand Opera presents Tom Cipullo’s Glory Denied, as part of the Veterans Songbook Project. Opera attendees can donate a ticket to allow a Houston Veteran to attend the performance for free.

Based on the book by Tom Philpott, Glory Denied takes place during the Vietnam War and tells the true story of Colonel Floyd Joel Thompson, America’s longest-serving Prisoner of War from 1964-73. The opera details Thompson’s imprisonment in southeast Asia and his personal struggles following liberation.

Glory Denied will be available soon from E. C. Schirmer.
