Glory Denied (Older Thompson)

"Singing with a clear, handsome sound, baritone Gregory Gerbrandt easily moved from being commanding to vulnerable."
          -Cleveland Classical (October 2018), Glory Denied, Older Jim Thompson


Gerbrandt stars in the European Premiere of Tom Cipullo's brilliant American opera, Glory Denied. This true story of Vietnam veteran Colonel Jim Thompson, the longest held prisoner of war in American history, explores the unimaginable bravery asked of soldiers and even the nature of hope itself. Join Gerbrandt as he takes on the immense challenges of the title role, the all-international cast, and the artistic team of Amici Arts in Berlin, Germany for this incredible event and premiere. Gerbrandt has made quite a name for himself in this role, having performed it to critical acclaim in numerous productions of this opera across the United States.
