KHAOS, the opera

March 17, 2012

KHAOS, the opera by BC composer Don MacDonald and BC playwright, Nicola Harwood. Cranbrook is the first stop on the inaugural tour of this newly commissioned opera. Featuring soprano, Allison Girvan, mezzo soprano, Audrey Bissett, tenor Roger Ley and baritone, Kevin Armstrong in the principal roles.
KHAOS is an opera that re-imagines the fertility myth of Persephone and Demeter, a myth that reinforces our understanding of the seasonal cycles of death and regeneration.
The story has all the hallmarks of a great operatic libretto with love, betrayal, loss and redemption played out on a grand scale.
This one-time only performance is jointly sponsored by Nelson Community Opera and the Symphony of the Kootenays. Don't miss this world premiere performance!

An enjoyable evening ... !!!
