1914-1918: The Making of the Modern World
The Canadian Opera Company’s Opera Exchange in partnership with the Munk School of Global Affairs present “Coming Home: Handel’s ‘Hercules.’” The ancient Greek tragedian Sophocles was also a war general who knew first-hand the devastating psychological traumas that imperiled returning veterans. This day-long symposium is inspired by the COC’s new production of ‘Hercules’ – Handel’s take on Sophocles’ play – in which celebrated director Peter Sellars creates a healing work dealing with the untold horrors of war and the unspoken complications of reunion.
