Soldier Songs is a worthy addition to the far-too-slight catalog of opera presented in cinematic form... Its imagistic playfulness accords with the subtlety of the score’s blend of post-Minimalist and hard-rock influences.” The New York Times 


“An immersive experience that takes the audience on a terrifying dive into the mind of a veteran with post-traumatic stress disorder.” – The Wall Street Journal 

A remarkable achievement for Johnathan McCullough as performer and as filmmaker.” – Opera News 


A brilliantly realized streaming production… It moves through a gamut of styles that range from rock, to a more contemporary classical.” - Parterre Box
