PTSD at FWO
War is no stranger to drama, song or the combination of the two in classic form: opera. The Vietnam conflict, however, isn’t something we hear contextualized through song as often. Colonel Jim Thompson’s book, Glory Denied, details his experience of coming home as the longest-held prisoner of war. After nearly nine years in captivity, life is dramatically different, people have changed and he has certainly transformed. All of these themes prove perfect for a transition onto the operatic stage. The Fort Worth Opera takes on the vet’s tale in Glory Denied, opening with a 2 p.m. performance Sunday at McDavid Studio (at Bass Performance Hall), 310 E. 5th St. in Fort Worth. The opera runs through May 11, and tickets are $87. Visit fwopera.org.
