Experience the poignant drama of World War One from the eyes of Isaac, an Indigenous hunter/trapper, who joined the 107th “Timber Wolf” Battalion. Written by Andrew Balfour with librettist Tracey Nepinak, Notinikew (“he who takes part in war”) features half-Cree cellist/composer Cris Derksen, and the Winnipeg Boys’ Choir, among other guest artists. Fallen also features Herbert Howells’ Requiem, a masterwork on the death of his son.
This is the second concert in a series dedicated to truth and reconciliation. In 2020, look for our third concert, Captive, expressing the power and sadness of Indigenous incarceration.
