Continuum is thrilled to present our first full-scale multimedia opera in this special collaboration. Set in the 1950s, the classic hockey rivalry between Toronto and Montreal takes centre stage with a side of organized crime. Love, lust, scandal, blood, betrayal - in sudden death, who wins and who loses is determined not by fate but by the final shot.

Co-produced with Ensemble contemporain de Montréal (ECM+) and the TCAF - The Toronto Comic Arts Festival.

Artistic Director and conductor: Véronique Lacroix (CA)
Composer: André Ristic (CA)
Librettist: Cecil Castellucci (US/CA)
Illustrator: Kymberlyn Porter (CA)
Stage Director: Marie-Josée Chartier (CA)
