UNKNOWN is a dramatic song cycle honoring the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington Cemetery, which occurs on November 11, 2021. UNKNOWN explores the ideas of war, honor, and memory through the eyes of soldiers, family members, and Tomb Guards who are connected to each other and the Tomb through their mutual service and sacrifice. In an effort to capture the national significance of the Tomb, UrbanArias has partnered with opera companies from around the country for the project, which will include a live performance and a film. UNKNOWN is commissioned by UrbanArias with Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts, Opera Colorado, Minnesota Opera, Opera Birmingham, and Stephen E. and Dorothy P. Bird.
