FM Opera Presents Soldier Songs at NDSU Festival Concert Hall

April 8@2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

$40 - $80
Fargo-Moorhead Premiere:
Soldier Songs by David T. Little
April 6, 2018, 7:30 p.m.
April 8, 2018, 2:00 p.m.
NDSU Festival Concert Hall

Gripping & realistic, Solder 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 & serving in the military, dealing with the real-life horrors of war & later in life dealing with the real-life horrors of war – 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.  

This production has adult themes – not suggested for young children
