Truth and Reconciliation

In the monodrama Truth and Reconciliation, a man receives an award for resolving conflicts in war zones around the world. His life’s work is reconciling former enemies by establishing truth commissions, and he is very good at it. And yet, he finds himself in conflict with his own family life, wondering whether truth is always the best course of action to follow. Join baritone Jonathan Hays at Opera America for this exploration of what it means to do the right thing.
