Three Decembers
Composer: Jake Heggie

Librettist: Gene Scheer, Gene Scheer, Gene Scheer
Synopsis
The two adult children of a famous actress, Madeline Mitchell, have not come to terms with their mother’s absorption with her career and her resultant neglect of them. Their father, an actor, died in an accident when they were very small, and Madeline (Maddy) rationalizes that as a single mother and breadwinner it was necessary to put her career first. Maddy’s daughter Beatrice and son Charlie are dealing with enormous problems: Bea is unhappily married and seeks comfort from alcohol, while Charlie is about to lose his partner to AIDS. When Madeline is nominated for a Tony, she invites Charlie and Bea to attend the awards ceremony. She and Bea plan to meet at her apartment beforehand to get dressed, but Maddy doesn’t show up on time. Once again let down by her mother, Bea drinks. When Maddy finally arrives and sees the state Bea is in, she compares her to her father, setting off a chain reaction of recrimination, revelation, and, at long last, resolution.
