The dead tell their side of the story in this wildly dramatic reimagining 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.
We are ever so grateful for the many partners and funders that support Ghost Opera including:
Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity
Canada Council for the Arts New Chapter Program
National Arts Centre's National Creation Fund
OPERA America Opera Grants for Female Composers,
supported by the Virginia B. Toulmin Foundation
Harry and Martha Cohen Foundation
The Roberta Stephen Award
