He takes what he wants. And gets what he deserves.
Whether it’s an act of lust or an act of violence Don Giovanni does whatever he wants, to whomever he pleases. You might be surprised by how much his angst and unrest resonates with you in this hypnotic tale of a man who refuses to change, damn the consequences.
THE LONG WALK

The real fight begins when a soldier comes home.
Opera becomes overwhelmingly personal in this contemporary story of an American soldier coping with PTSD after he returns home from duty in Iraq. Based on Brian Castner’s best-selling memoir, this opera offers a visceral look at the realities of modern warfare and the unseen battles that rage inside our hearts.
Music by Jeremy Howard Beck
Libretto by Stephanie Fleischmann
Based on the book The Long Walk: A Story of War and the Life that Follows by Brian Castner
Commissioned by American Lyric Theater
