Opera, As In: Writing One

A Department of Music FARLS talk by Kendra Harder, Michelle Telford and guests

Composer and librettist duo Kendra Harder and Michelle Telford will lead a panel with the creative team of Orpheus & Eurydice: Nox about the process of writing and developing this new opera. Nox is a queer retelling of the Orpheus myth, lifting up the voices of queer women, and shining a light on love. It also explores how homophobia and misogyny play out as violence against women in the 2SLGBTQ+ community. This work was inspired as tribute to those lost in the 2016 Orlando Pulse nightclub shooting.

The panel will be followed by a sneak peek at the opera in progress. Voice students from the University of Saskatchewan will perform excerpts from Nox after a weekend workshop with Harder & Telford, Musique 3 Femmes, and dramaturg Cori Ellison.
