Park Ridge’s Petite Opera company will present the Chicago premiere of a new opera, “The Falling and the Rising,” based on experiences of U.S. military veterans, on four weekends in November at St. Mary’s Episcopal Church’s The Mary Wilson House-Beyer Auditorium, located on Crescent behind the church, 306 S. Prospect Ave., Park Ridge.
The Falling and the Rising features a libretto by Jerre Dye and music by Zach Redler. Based on interviews of veterans returning from combat and reentering lives at home, the story traces experiences of a wounded female soldier. This production features a chorus of veterans.
Performances are 7:30 p.m. Saturdays and 2:30 p.m. Sundays the first four weekends in November (Nov. 2-24).
