“Here is the story of the great forest that caught on fire”

In this inspiring story, the determined hummingbird does everything she can to put out a raging fire that threatens her forest home. The parable of The Hummingbird eloquently expresses the power of taking small steps to achieve a big goal. With origins among the Quechan people of South America and the Haida of the North Pacific, this story inspires us all to act of behalf of the world and its precious resources.

A community presentation and professional development workshop for teachers will take place in May 2019 as part of the Vancouver Opera Festival.

The Flight of the Hummingbird is a co-production with Vancouver Opera and Pacific Opera Victoria.
