The Falling and the Rising, a new American opera from the Seagle Music Colony. This exciting new opera, based on the true stories of dozens of active duty soldiers and veterans, honors the indomitable spirit of our military veterans and sheds light on the power of their often-overlooked stories. This new opera had its world premiere in Fort Worth, Texas in April and will travel the country throughout this year. Catch it at Hubbard Hall before it plays the rest of the country. Join us in honoring our veterans and active duty soldiers with this tribute to their courage and compassion.
