The Flight of the Hummingbird is based on an indigenous parable from the Quechuan people of South America. The story of the brave hummingbird travelled through pre-contact trade routes to become well known within Haida culture. This opera is influenced by the graphic novel written by Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas and will include elements of his dramatic Haida-manga illustrations. Vancouver Opera and Pacific Opera Victoria have collaborated to co-commission and co-produce a new opera for young audiences with music by Maxime Goulet and libretto by Michael Nicoll Yahuglanaas (Haida) and Barry Gilson. The Flight of the Hummingbird stage director is Glynis Leyshon with musical direction by Kinza Tyrrell. The opera is 45-minutes in length and features four singers and a small ensemble. Created for young audiences, The Flight of the Hummingbird is a beautiful contemporary performance.
