THE FALLING AND THE RISING
Peabody Chamber Opera
Music by Zach Redler and Jerre Dye
February 7 – 10
Every year, thousands of soldiers’ stories go untold. Stories of heroism, honor, and sacrifice. Now, some of those stories will be told. The Falling and The Rising tells the story of a young American soldier struggling being away from her children, who suffers injury in battle. As she hovers between life and death, other soldiers begin to tell their stories as well- stories of loss, homecoming, and ultimately, of hope.
