OUT at the Opera: Preview Night – Three Decembers
Mar 30 @ 7:00 pm – 9:30 pm

Join Opera Memphis and our event partners, as we engage and connect with many facets of the Memphis LGBTQA community and HIV/AIDS partners all around a production about family, loss, illness, acceptance, and forgiveness.

Three Decembers tells the story of a famous stage actress – Madeline Mitchell – and her two adult children: Beatrice and Charlie. Both children resent their mother’s long absences on the road and her lack of concern for the tragedies in their lives. Charlie believes his mother is distant because he is gay, even as his partner Burt, is dying of AIDS.

Meanwhile, Beatrice, trapped in an unhappy marriage, feels Madeline resents her enduring affection for their deceased father. As the story unfolds over the decades, long-simmering resentments surface, accusations are hurled and family secrets revealed, leading ultimately to a hard-won peace and forgiveness for both the living and the dead.

Before and after the preview performance of Three Decembers, we’ll host an organization fair, highlighting some of the Memphis groups working in the areas of HIV/AIDS and LGBTQA issues. Following the performance, guests are invited to join us in the Festival Lounge for cocktails and a chance to meet and mingle with fellow opera-goers.

Tickets can be purchased in advance by calling the Opera Memphis Box Office at 901.257.3100 or at the door the day of show.

Proceeds from this performance will be donated to benefit local LGBTQA and HIV/AIDS organizations.
