June 29th & June 30th

Nichols Flickinger Performing Arts Center


Libretto by JERRE DYE

THE FALLING AND THE RISING is a powerful story based on interviews with real service members and Veterans. It follows the journey of a Soldier, posted in a conflict overseas, whose world is forever changed by an improvised explosive device. Her path home is one of struggle, resilience, community and resounding strength. THE FALLING AND THE RISING resonates through stunning music and the authentic portrayal of heroes who serve, whose real experiences are artfully woven into this remarkable new American opera.”
