The Falling and the Rising is an operatic story of service, sacrifice, and connection inside uncertainty. The opera was originally created from compiled interviews with deployed soldiers upon their return to Walter Reed National Medical Center, Arlington Cemetery, and Fort Meade. It serves as an ode to American soldiers, honoring the indomitable spirit of our military veterans and shining a light on the significance of their often untold stories.

In this parable based on the works of Oscar Wilde, a gilded statue of a beautiful Prince suddenly comes to life. The Prince, realizing the destitute state of the home he once ruled, enlists the help of an unassuming Swallow to deliver gifts to those in need. Observing the charity of the Prince and his new feathered friend, the townsfolk newly realize the importance of generosity and empathy.
