Broadway star Madeline Mitchell and her grown children, Bea and Charlie, struggle to know and love each other over the course of three different holiday seasons, each ten years apart.  Through its melodic soundtrack, this emotional, often humorous, drama explores how to love and embrace the family we are given.  Come see why the Wall Street Journal calls Jake Heggie “the world’s most popular 21st century opera composer.”
