Recommended for young adults (12-18 years old)

While visiting a boisterous, old-fashioned carnival, best friends Léa and Ivy stumble upon a dark secret. Their ghostly discovery makes them confront an age-old dilemma: when faced with another person’s suffering, do you turn away, or try to help?

This new opera, by former COC Composer-in-Residence Ian Cusson with libretto by acclaimed playwright Colleen Murphy, explores themes of death, violence, compassion and the courage to insist on being heard.

Former COC Director/Dramaturg-in-Residence Julie McIsaac joins the creative team as director and dramaturg, along with a number of current and graduate Ensemble Studio artists cast in leading roles; these include: sopranos Jamie Groote and Midori Marsh as Léa and Ivy; tenor Owen McCausland as the carnival worker Emile; and soprano Charlotte Siegel in the role of Léa’s mother Manon. Set design and costumes from Camellia Koo, executed by Design Co-ordinator Jung-Hye Kim, and lighting by Mikael Kangas infuse the atmosphere with whimsy, nostalgia, and mystery in this haunting, contemporary ghost story.
