Inter-Island Tour Special Events with Hawaii Public Radio

Join Hawaii Public Radio for a night out filled with food, drink, and the opera, when Hawaii Opera Theatre (HOT) stages Three Decembers, featuring opera legend Frederica von Stade.

Composed by Jake Heggie (Moby Dick, Dead Man Walking), Three Decembers is based on a play by Terrence McNally about Broadway star Madeline Mitchell as she enters the twilight of her career and life. The story unfolds with Madeline, estranged from her children, sharing a secret she has kept, and over three decades hidden truths are revealed as they struggle to find their identities as part of their family and in their lives.

Frederica von Stade makes her HOT debut as Madeline, in what the Houston Chronicle called “the role of a lifetime” when she created it for the premiere in 2008.

Hawaii Opera Theatre will take this production from Honolulu to the Neighbor Islands and, with HPR, will be offering exclusive pre-performance dinner and ticket packages on the Neighbor Islands as follows:

Hawaiʻi island – Kahilu Theatre
Wednesday, March 29, 7:30pm
