Connecting with veterans

Art initiates life in a discussion about life after war, prompted by the Lyric Opera’s new show, Hercules.

By Asher Klein, '11

A propos of the Lyric Opera’s new production of Handel’s Hercules, set in the modern day in what might be Iraq or Afghanistan, the University and Lyric Opera organized “War Follows Everyone Home,” a talk on the experience of veterans returning home after war. The hour-long discussion included director Peter Sellars, trustee Jack Fuller, former publisher of the Tribune, journalist Julia Keller, and psychology professor John Cacioppo.
