Soldier Songs
Composer: David T. Little

Librettist: David T Little, David T Little
Synopsis
Soldier Songs is an evening-length multimedia event combining elements of theater, opera, rock-infused concert music, a100nd animation to explore the perceptions versus the realities of a soldier, the exploration of loss and exploitation of innocence, and the difficulty of expressing the truth of war.  The libretto, created by the composer, was adapted from recorded interviews with veterans of five wars.  The work traces changing perceptions of war in our society and by those who experience it.  The nameless soldier depicted is followed through three phases of life: Youth (playing war games), Warrior (time served in the military), and Elder (aged, wise, reflective).  Each of the eleven songs explores a different aspect of a soldier's war experience ranging from rage, to fear, to joy, and to grief.  Multi-media elements are employed to glamorize and falsify the truth of a life as a combatant.
