An opera for the whole family.
In this enchanting new opera , the animals of the forest are inspired to come together by Dukdukdiya, the Hummingbird, to save their beautiful home from a raging fire.
The Flight of the Hummingbird is based on an indigenous parable from the Quechuan people of South America. The story of the brave hummingbird travelled through pre-contact trade routes to become well known within Haida culture. This opera is influenced by the graphic novel written by Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas and will include elements of his dramatic Haida-manga illustrations.
An opera for the whole family, The Flight of the Hummingbird is co-commissioned and co-produced by Pacific Opera Victoria and Vancouver Opera.
It will also tour to BC schools and community venues from January to May 2020. Learn more about booking a school performance.
