CHINATOWN is a new opera by the renowned Madeleine Thien. Set in 1961, it looks at the people and cultures and stories of a great neighbourhood. We are now testing its text in front of live audiences.
Please join us on Saturday 30 November, from 7 - 9pm at the DTES Carnegie Centre for a public workshop and talkback. Text-only. No music for another year. Join Maddie herself, and six professional actors, as we explore and beta-test the libretto in progress. Your comments are invaluable to us. Free, of course.
The complete opera will premiere in September 2021 at The Playhouse. Our thanks to The Vancouver Foundation, and the City of Vancouver, for generous support. We are very grateful.
