Description: Set in Judevine, a small, poor town in northern Vermont, during the 1970s, the opera concentrates on the ill-fated love of Tommy, a young Vietnam veteran, and Grace, an older single mother. It follows their story through a cycle of the seasons with commentary, local color, and humor provided by six other characters and the oft-present chorus. This is a story of love and tragedy in contemporary rural New England told with grace, humor, melodic richness, and emotional power.
