Make like a tree and sing! Vancouver Opera in Schools presents the wonderful story of Jack Pine, the gnarly and misunderstood tree who lives in the Canadian Rockies and tries to find his place among the other trees. Come meet the tenacious Jack Pine and his friends as they explore some of the myths and facts of Canada’s vast forests. An engaging 45-minute opera for young audiences (kindergarten to grade 7), Jack Pine is based on the children’s book of the same name by Christopher Patton, with music and libretto by Veda Hille.

Hiather Darnel-Kadonaga (soprano), Rose-Ellen Nichols (mezzo-soprano), Adam Fisher (tenor), and Michael MacKinnon (bass) are the talented cast, accompanied by pianist Andrea Wood. Both childfriendly and environmentally-friendly, this musical romp through the forests of western Canada is a delightful family outing.

Jack Pine will also be performed from April 21 to 24 in local schools.
