Appearing as Homecoming Soldier in The Falling and The Rising – Brandon Sokol
Brandon has recently appeared as Bass/Darkling (Third Eye Theatre Ensemble), Enrico/Il campanello (New Moon Opera Company), Muse/When Adonis Calls (Thompson Street Opera Company), Masetto Convinto (Masetto)/#metoo Don Giovanni (Petite Opera Productions), and Archibald Grosvenor/Patience (The Gilbert & Sullivan Opera Company). Brandon is also an associate member of both the Chicago Symphony and Grant Park Festival choruses.
“I am thrilled to be sharing this opera with a new audience. Whether broadly or personally, we all are affected by the service of our military. Despite this, most of us still are unaware of the complications and challenges our veterans face once back home. It’s quite a special privilege to represent some of their intimate stories through this unique medium. These accounts are surprisingly relatable; they touch on themes of loneliness, guilt, and feeling like an outsider, as well as bravery and perseverance in the face of the unknown/unchangeable, which all strike a universal chord.”
