AN AMERICAN SOLDIER (Perelman PAC – Saturday, May 18, 2024 @ 8:00pm)

 Registration is closed for this event

The New York Premiere of a soaring new opera based on a powerful true story.

On October 3, 2011, Chinese-American Army Pct. Danny Chen was found dead in a guard tower at this base in Afghanistan. Based on his story and the ensuing courts-martial of Chen's fellow soldiers, this NYC premiere opera tells the powerful story of a young soldier from Manhattan's Chinatown who sought to serve his country, only to find his biggest threat was the very people who swore to protect him.

Told through the multidimensional music of Huang Ruo (M. Butterfly, Book of Mountains and Seas) with libretto by Tony and Grammy winner David Henry Hwang (M. Butterly, Soft Power), and directed by Obie Award winner Chay Yew (Cambodian Rock Band, Sweatshot Overlord), An American Soldier is a powerful and unforgettable experience.
