It’s now no secret.
I’m writing an opera.
The subject is the Canadian hospital ship ‘Llandovery Castle’ and her doomed voyage to Britain in 1918, with 14 Canadian nurses on board.
I will tell you more very soon, about how this came about, how I found my librettist Paul Ciufo and collaborating producers of the Bicycle Opera Project,
but I just wanted to share this article by Cassandra Szklarski of the National Post because it is so cool and terrifying to have press
before we’ve finished writing.
