The real fight begins when a soldier comes home.
Opera becomes overwhelmingly personal in this contemporary story of an American soldier coping with blast-induced traumatic brain injury after he returns home from duty in Iraq. Based on the book The Long Walk: A Story of War and the Life that Follows, Brian Castner’s best-selling memoir, this opera offers a visceral look at the realities of modern warfare and the unseen battles that rage inside our hearts.
