The Falling and The Rising, a new American opera, is based upon a series of interviews with wounded warriors, active duty Soldiers, and Veterans, and seeks to share the camaraderie and values of Soldiers serving in America’s Army. It tells the story of a Soldier, posted in a conflict overseas, whose world is forever changed by an improvised explosive device shortly after a video chat with her daughter.
