On Saturday, the Houston-based contemporary music ensemble Musiqa will present a chamber opera called Ulysses, Home. It combines the mythological story of Ulysses with modern stories of soldiers with post-traumatic stress returning to domestic life. In conjunction with the upcoming performance, Musiqa recently hosted a panel discussion about PTSD.
