“Requiem For A Young Man is a feast for the senses…”
James Tutten wrote a wonderful review of Requiem for a Young Man after viewing the performance. Here’s some of what he had to say:
A masterly composed musical entitled “Requiem For A Young Man” officially premiered at Valencia’s Performing Arts Center on May 10, after eight years of preparations by visionary creator and composer Ronald Owen. This touching tribute to the emotions of war was presented in a classic operatic style. The relatable archetypal characters and exceptional music compositions gives this concept all the foundations of the next great American musical.

“This is an original, engaging, and moving new work. The music, acting, and choreography combine to tell one powerful story of sacrifice that touches the stories of everyone in the audience. It is a deeply moving effort to remember those who serve in the military in every era.”
