TomoeArts: Kayoi Komachi/Komachi Visited – October 26 – 28, 2017
October 26, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - October 28, 2017 @ 8:00 pm
TomoeArts presents the world premiere of Kayoi Komachi/Komachi Visited, a groundbreaking noh chamber opera, October 26 – 28, 2017 at The Cultch.
This operatic reimagining of Kayoi Komachi, a classic tale of unrequited love, will innovatively merge noh – Japan’s 14th century theatre art of highly-stylized movement accompanied by stirring chant – with Western classical music. Vancouver’s own acclaimed soprano Heather Pawsey and preeminent noh artist Yamai Tsunao, backed by a virtuosic ensemble, will perform music by award-winning Iranian-Canadian composer Farshid Samandari. Don’t miss this moving adaptation, and otherworldly tale of tormented lovers seeking solace through deeper understanding.
