listen to this song….(go ahead, you’ll be glad you did)

Likeness to Lily’s –TRAINING CADENCE

(#5 on the play list)

The night before the burial of her husband’s body, Katherin Cathey refused to leave the casket, asking to sleep next to his body for the last time.  The Marines made a bed for her.  Before she fell asleep, she opened her laptop to play songs that reminded her of her husband, ‘Cat.’

One of the Marines asked if he could continue standing watch while she slept.

When asked:  “What can we do to make things better for you?” – the first thing a soldier usually says is . . .“We need your support and prayers.”

There’s a silent movement going around to show solidarity for our troops by wearing the color BLUE on each and every Friday.  Consider sending some energy of support and good wishes to our soldiers…I imagine they could use it!

…I’m a hero
I’m  a target
I’m a cog in the war machine…

Command Voice is an evening-length, multimedia opera that re-imagines Odysseus’s return through the story of a post-combat Marine, his waiting wife, and the scientist who promises to restore their life to ‘new normal’.

With original video and artwork by Justin Waldstein, music direction by Tony Melone, and through the songs of Susan Oetgen and Likeness to Lily, Command Voice considers the process of healing injury in a world where technology allows us to exceed our human limitaitons, while at the same time compelling us to confront the ambiguous consequences of the power it bestows.

With Susan O’Dea as The Marine, Megan Schubert as The Scientist and Susan Oetgen as The Wife.

And Likeness to Lily: Susan Oetgen, Tony Melone, Ian Riggs and Evan Pazner.
