The Art of Opera with Dr. Miriam Schildkret

The Falling and the Rising: For Patrons 60 and Older
Wednesday, September 14, 2022 - 1:00pm

Join Dr. Miriam Schildkret, PN1 for our Fall Series with the Jewish Family and Children's Services Center for Senior Enrichment. This class will focus on The Falling and the Rising. 

A powerful story of service and sacrifice, based on interviews with returning soldiers at the Walter Reed National Medical Center, The Falling and the Rising takes place largely in the mind of a soldier following a roadside attack. Follow her through a coma-induced dreamscape as she has powerful and moving encounters with fellow service members.

This virtual class is FREE.
