Gripping and realistic, Soldier Songs traces the shift in perception of war from the age of 6 to the age of 66. Follow the lead character through the phases of life from boy to man: playing violent video games as a boy, enlisting and serving in the military, dealing with the real-life horrors of war & later becoming a father whose worst fears are realized with the news of the death of his son. Adapted from interviews with veterans of five wars, this opera theater experience explores the ideas versus the realities of the Soldier, the exploration of and exploitation of innocence along with the "seemingly impossible" of expressing the truth of war. [**Not recommended for children.**]
