David T. Little’s “Soldier Songs” - San Diego OperaTalk

10/4/2016; 51 minutes

Join San Diego Opera's Nicolas Reveles in an intimate discussion with David T. Little, the composer of "Soldier Songs," and conductor Steven Schick. Little's innovative opera is a gripping drama with a libretto made up of reflections on war by veterans of five major foreign conflicts. "Soldier Songs" explores the ideals versus the realities of the soldier, loss, the exploitation of innocence, & the impossibility of expressing the truth of war. (#30784)
