Performer Profile

The Aquila Theatre and American combat veterans/actors of the Warrior Chorus collaborate on a unique theatrical experience – The Trojan War, where the classic myths of ancient Greece and Rome are set against the compelling narratives of modern war.

The Trojan War uses epic moments from Homer’s Iliad and scenes from other classical Greek drama and poetry to propel a thrilling chronicle of men and women at war. The clash of gods and heroes, the rage of Achilles, the suicide of Ajax, the fall of Troy and the rise of Rome are among the many stories of war and homecoming told by the Aquila Theatre alongside members of the Warrior Chorus.

The Warrior Chorus is a national program that brings together men and women who served in the United States military and trains them to the highest level in the performing arts and humanities. The finest members of three Warrior Choruses (New York, California and Texas) will join Aquila’s professional artists to tell these moving stories.
