One of the New York Times' "10 Classical Concerts to Stream in January."
Opera, rock, and film collide in David T. Little's exploration of the life of the Soldier. Based on interviews with veterans of five wars, the piece boldly examines the impact of trauma, the exploitation of innocence, and the difficulty of expressing war's painful truths.
In a new film made exclusively for the Opera Philadelphia Channel, baritone Johnathan McCullough directs and stars as the Soldier. Little's music and text cement his reputation as “one of the most imaginative young composers” working today (The New Yorker).
