The Falling and the Rising is an exciting new American opera that salutes the service and sacrifice of military service men and women. Created in hopes of capturing the indomitable spirit of our U.S. military veterans and to shed light on the inspirational power of their often overlooked stories, The Falling and the Rising is a story of family, service, and sacrificed inside a period of great uncertainty.
