“Here is the story of the great forest that caught on fire”
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. Created for young audiences, The Flight of the Hummingbird is a beautiful contemporary performance for kids and adults.
