“An American Soldier”

June 3, 2018 - June 22, 2018

First debuted on a smaller scale by the Washington National Opera in 2014, “An American Soldier,” by critically acclaimed composer Huang Ruo and Tony Award-winning playwright David Henry Hwang, now sees its full length premiere with the Opera Theatre of Saint Louis.

21CM Takeaway: This work dramatizes the true story of Chinese American soldier Danny Chen, who took his own life after experiencing extreme hazing while deployed in Afghanistan. Ruo and Hwang’s work asks powerful questions about what it means to be an American.
