"mesmerizing ... as intriguing as it was beautiful ... a hit"

Calgary Herald / National Post



The dead tell their side of the story in this wildly dramatic re-imagining of an ancient Greek tale brought to you by Canada's masters of puppetry for adults.


Combining a haunting score by celebrated composer Veronika Krausas, and the fantastical visual universe of the internationally renowned Old Trout Puppet Workshop, Ghost Opera is a musical spectacle unlike anything you've seen before.
