Soldier Songs

Ford Amphitheatre
2580 Cahuenga Blvd. East Hollywood

Soldier Songs is a groundbreaking multimedia piece from award-winning composer David T. Little and filmmaker Bill Morrison that combines elements of theatre, opera, rock and film to trace changing perceptions of war in both our society and by those who experience it. Little created the libretto using recorded interviews with veterans of five wars. The nameless soldier is followed through three phases of life: Youth (playing war games); Warrior (time served in the military); and Elder (aged, wise, reflective). Multimedia elements are employed as a critique of the media's ability to both glamorize and falsify the realities of combat. A monodrama for baritone and chamber orchestra, Soldier Songs stars David Adam Moore, who created the role of the Soldier at the work's 2008 premiere at Le Poisson Rouge in New York. Enjoy this powerful performance at Hollywood's Ford Theatres.
