Berkshire Opera Festival (BOF) returns live opera to the stage in 2021 with the great American opera Glory Denied.
Glory Denied is a gripping tale of an American family during one of our nation’s most turbulent times. It tells the true story of Colonel Jim Thompson, America’s longest-held prisoner of war, from his suffering in the jungle of southeast Asia to his personal torment following his liberation as he returns to a country he no longer recognizes and a family that barely recognizes him.–
