KHAOS, the opera

The town of Nelson is buzzing with anticipation of the opening of a brand new locally created opera.  It's titled KHAOS and is a modern version of the ancient Greek myth of Persephone and Demeter.

Composer Don MacDonald and writer Nicola Harwood have been working for years to create the piece. They were commissioned to write KHAOS by the Amy Ferguson Institute.
KHAOS runs March 8 - 10 at the Capitol Theatre in Nelson and March 17 at the Key City Theatre in Cranbrook.  Later in the spring it will tour to Trail, Grand Forks and Creston.

Freelancer Bill Metcalfe has the story of the opera.
