Three Decembers

World-renowned mezzo-soprano Susan Graham leads the cast of Opera San José’s first fully-staged digital production, Jake Heggie’s THREE DECEMBERS, based on Tony Award winning playwright Terrence McNally’s unpublished play “Some Christmas Letters”.

With a brilliant, witty libretto by Gene Scheer and a soaring musical score by Jake Heggie, “Three Decembers” is a 90-minute fullhearted American opera about family – the ones we are born into and those we create.
