The desperate tale of a wounded Confederate deserter’s struggle to reach his beloved home and wife after the battle of Petersburg, Virginia, Cold Mountain is a tale of how strong the power of love and the longing for peace and home can be within us, as well as a reminder that within every era and place lie the narratives that illuminate our own humanity. The second in the Virginia Opera’s multi-year, “From Screen to Stage” initiative and a VO debut, Cold Mountain is based on Charles Frazier’s novel and the 2003 movie of the same title starring Nicole Kidman, Jude Law, and Renee Zelwegger.

Sung in English with English Supertitles

The orchestra for this production is provided by the Virginia Symphony Orchestra.

Join Dr. Glenn Winters for his “Opera Up Close” pre-curtain talk forty-five minutes before each performance for his informative and entertaining insights on each production.
