The Long Walk at Pittsburgh Opera

 

The Long Walk, first presented by Opera Saratoga in July 2015 to critical acclaim, has recently finished its triumphant run at the Pittsburgh Opera. These performances marked the third production of this still relatively new opera, a riveting music drama by BTM’s Jeremy Howard Beck and librettist Stephanie Fleischmann based on Brian Castner‘s own account of his complicated and often tortured reintegration into the society post-deployment in Iraq.
