An American Soldier

June 3, 2018 - June 22, 2018

Danny Chen is the son of Chinese immigrants, and a proud American. He enlists in the US Army in 2011, eager to serve his country. In boot camp, Danny is welcomed by his band of brothers. But in Afghanistan, his own base becomes enemy territory as military hazing turns deadly. Based on a true story, this world premiere of the new two-act opera by composer Huang Ruo and playwright David Henry Hwang, both ACC grantees, asks powerful questions about what it means to be an American.
