Pace Presents DAVID T. LITTLE'S SOLDIER SONGS, Beginning 1/11Pace Presents DAVID T. LITTLE'S SOLDIER SONGS, Beginning 1/11
by BWW News Desk - Dec 18, 2012

Soldier Songs is an evening-length multimedia event from composer David T. Little that combines elements of theater, opera, rock-infused concert music, and animation to portray a chilling and realistic view of our media-crazed, war machine culture, and of the nature of power in war. It delivers tough questions and tells tough stories through its poignant libretto, driving music, and surprising visual counterpoint. Created by the composer, the libretto was adapted from recorded interviews with veterans of five wars. Soldier Songs traces the shift in perception of war from the age of 6 to the age of 66. We follow the abstract character through the three phases of life: Child (playing war games) Warrior (time served in the military) and Elder (aged, wise,reflective). (more...)
