“Each person has done something to threaten Peace, Order and Good Government. In a series of spoken dialogues and sung arias, we discover who they are and what the charges are.” — Toronto Star
In Spring 2020, composer Kevin Lau and librettist Joel Ivany present the world premiere of BOUND. A fully realized three-year concept to realization project that infuses new sounds and ideas into the backbone of Handel’s existing works. In the wake of the world’s refugee crisis, this operatic premiere explores the current state of those displaced, dehumanized and mistreated, with texts and stories drawn from real-life news articles and world events.
