A new opera opens in Vancouver, BC
"The Dream Healer," an all Canadian opera will receive its world premiere tomorrow at The Chan Centre for Performing Arts at the University of British Columbia. Composer Lloyd Burritt based his opera on the novel "Pilgrim" by fellow Canadian Timothy Findley. The Toronto Globe and Mail previews the opera. The opera's website provides this summary: "Focused on Carl Jung at the Burghölzli Clinic in Zürich, it is a story about disintegration of the psyche."
