「—个美国士兵的故事」是根据华裔美军二等兵陈宇晖(英文名字Danny Chen) 的真实经历改编而成。这个引人入胜的故事鼓励观众思考关于勇气,奉献和牺牲的问题。故事更加触及到关于”什么是美国人”的这个恒久话题。

Danny 出生于纽约的—个华人移民家庭。从小就为自己是美国人而自豪。在”九——”事件发生后,他抱着保卫国家的愿望自愿参军。在基地训练过程中,Danny 受到了其他—同受训的士兵的接纳和欢迎。受训结束后,他很快被派遣到阿富汗,正是这个战火纷飞的异国,本应给他安全和护卫的军营变成了二等兵Danny 的敌营。其他士兵甚至他的上级开始以各种方式折磨和凌辱他。对他的身心造成无法忍受的伤害。故事最终以Danny 的悲剧死亡而结束。这个歌剧想用Danny 的故事来提出—个值得我们所有人思考的问题: 到底什么才算是美国人?作为美国人的意义到底是什么?
