Opera Theatre of Saint Louis Offers Special Military Appreciation Performances

In recognition of the service of our men and women in uniform, Opera Theatre of Saint Louis (OTSL) is honored to host two military appreciation performances in conjunction with the world premiere of An American Soldier, a new opera inspired by the true story of Private Danny Chen.

All veterans, active military personnel, and their families are invited to join us on June 6 at 8 p.m., or June 9 at 1 p.m. for An American Soldier, with tickets just $15. A pre-show wine and cheese reception will be offered at both performances.

As an added bonus, on June 6, a small ensemble from the Air Force Band of Mid-America will perform a free concert in the gardens starting at 11:30 a.m.

American SoldierAn American Soldier tells the story of Danny Chen, the son of Chinese immigrants, and a proud American. He enlists in the US Army in 2011, eager to serve his country. In boot camp, Danny is welcomed by his band of brothers. But in Afghanistan, his own base becomes enemy territory as military hazing turns deadly. Based on a true story, this opera asks powerful questions about what it means to be an American.

To reserve, call the box office at (314) 961-0644. Limit of four tickets per household.
