The 2017 Pulitzer Prize winning opera, Angel’s Bone, by Chinese-American Composer Du Yun and Canadian Librettist Royce Vavrek, will be a newly-imagined and all-Canadian production.
This new interpretation follows two youths who, seeking safety and stability, are lured into exploitative relationships by their traffickers, Mr. & Mrs. XE. While the story paints a picture of the realities of human trafficking of youth in our communities, it also depicts the resilience of survivors and the journey of reclaiming one’s power.
