A story everyone knows, from the vantage of a woman no one remembers.
A new chamber opera by Métis playwright Marie Clements and Juno-winning composer Brian Current, Missing gives voice, in English and Gitxsan, to the story of Canada’s missing and murdered Indigenous women. Set in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside and along the Highway of Tears, Missing is a poetic expression of loss and hope.
Missing is an extraordinarily moving and thought-provoking work… a magnificent mélange of singing, acting and music that, one hopes, will be seen by audiences across Canada and the world. – The Whole Note
Co-produced by Pacific Opera Victoria and City Opera Vancouver, the opera, developed over two and a half years, had its world première in Vancouver and Victoria in November 2017.
