My Lai As An Opera

My Lai As An Opera

Acclaimed tenor Rinde Eckert joins us to talk about his title role in BAM’s Next Wave opening performance of “My Lai” on Sept. 27. Featuring the Kronos Quartet, the mini-opera tells the story of Capt. Hugh Thompson who went against his fellow US troops to save Vietnamese civilians during the My Lai Massacre and stood trial for his actions. Eckert will be joined by composer Jonathan Berger.
"My Lai" runs from Sept. 27-30 at BAM (651 Fulton St., Brooklyn).
