The Flight of the Hummingbird tours British Columbia schools next year
After a successful preview at Vancouver Opera Festival, the Hummingbird is set to take flight in January 2020 at schools across our province. This new opera for young audience is a co-production with Vancouver Opera and Pacific Opera Victoria, and is influenced by the graphic novel written by Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas and will include elements of his dramatic Haida-manga illustrations. In it, the animals of the forest are inspired to come together by Dukdukdiya, the Hummingbird, to save their beautiful home from a raging fire.
The opera is 45-minutes in length and features four singers and a small ensemble. The production is suitable for students in Kindergarten through Grade 9. The production is accompanied by a study guide aligned with the First People’s Principles of Learning and the BC curriculum.
