New opera is alive and very well, thanks to the enterprise and imagination of Tapestry Opera in Toronto, and Opera on the Avalon in Newfoundland. In 2019, they gave the world premiere of a powerful new piece set in 1829, “on a haunting journey through the last days of a Beothuk woman who had lost everyone she had ever known.” An extraordinary achievement. A terrible truth.
City Opera Vancouver is grateful and honoured to work, create and perform on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territories of the Xwməθkwəyə̓ m (Musqueam), Sḵwxw̱ ú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl ̓ílwətaʔ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
