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.
Music and libretto by Tom Cipullo

Our free concert this summer pays tribute to William Shakespeare.
Berkshire Opera Festival presents an evening of music featuring texts by the great William Shakespeare, sung by members of our internationally-renowned cast of Falstaff.
When the merry wives of Windsor discover Falstaff’s plan to seduce them, they concoct a scheme to teach him a lesson he’ll never forget. Add a jealous husband, an array of disguises, and a pair of young lovers into the mix, and you get an exhilarating comedy of Shakespearean scope. Verdi’s final opera is a true celebration of life and laughter.
by Giuseppe Verdi
