Fallujah, the opera will be performed Nov 17. 18, 19, 20 at Duke Theatre on 42nd Street by New York City Opera. 
"With a score by Canadian composer Tobin Stokes and a libretto by Iraqi-American playwright Heather Raffo, Fallujah excavates the human and social effects of the Iraq War. The opera tells the dual story of an American Marine, Philip, - inspired by Christian Ellis, and a young Iraqi boy, Wissam, whose lives are both changed irrevocably by the devastating Battle of Fallujah. It exposes the daily fight for survival, in which PTSD is a reality lived by all involved: marines, their mothers, their medics and the Iraqis they are both fighting and protecting.” 
My daughter Suzan Hanson has a leading role in the production.
