This Canadian operatic production shines a light on the realities of human trafficking and the exploitation of youth in our local communities. 

Through innovative production techniques and philosophies, 

we are crafting a work that sings for those who are silenced—long after the curtain drops.  

Please see 'Resources' for information around Human Trafficking in Canada.
