World premiere! A young, talented musician is striving for perfection in her art. Bursting with the compulsion to reach the top, she invokes Canadian icon, classical pianist Glenn Gould to guide her towards dizzying heights. Adventurous singers perform suspended from The Royal Conservatory’s atrium in this daring new opera. Award-winning theatre artist and librettist Liza Balkan evokes the young artist’s rigorous journey, weaving many of Gould’s own words into the libretto, and acclaimed Canadian composer Brian Current delivers a thrilling, kinetic score. Directed by multiple Dora Award-winning Philip Akin and featuring The Glenn Gould School’s New Music Ensemble and students of The Phil and Eli Taylor Performance Academy for Young Artists.
