HGO’s holiday opera series continues with the world premiere of Jake Heggie and Gene Scheer’s It’s a Wonderful Life. Made famous by the 1946 Frank Capra movie, this timeless tale follows a troubled banker whose guardian angel helps us realize the lasting impact our lives can have on those around us.
Join us for the ultimate holiday classic from one of America’s leading composers (Moby Dick, Dead Man Walking, and Great Scott).
