On October 3, 2011, Chinese-American Army Pvt. Danny Chen was found dead in a guard tower at his base in Afghanistan. Based on his story and the ensuing courts-martial of Chen’s fellow soldiers, this New York City premiere opera tells the powerful true story of a young soldier from Manhattan’s Chinatown who sought to serve his country, only to find his biggest threat was the very people who swore to protect him. Told through the multidimensional music of Huang Ruo (M. ButterflyBook of Mountains and Seas) with libretto by Tony and Grammy winner David Henry Hwang (M. ButterflySoft Power), and directed by Obie Award winner Chay Yew (Cambodian Rock BandSweatshop Overlord), An American Soldier is a powerful and unforgettable experience.
