CBC Radio's Definitely Not The Opera took up residence in Hamilton this week. The show's live performance in the Zoetic Theatre featured local storytellers and musicians exploring what can happen in encounters with strangers.

The show featured stories about stranger encounters from Hamiltonians Leo Johnson, Deirdre Pike, Alana Didur and Tor Lukasik-Foss. The night also featured a performance by local band Young Rival.
One stunning story came from Canadian music legend Tom Wilson.
Two years ago, Wilson learned an incredible secret about his family. And he chose to reveal for the first time to DNTO the story of finding out, just two years ago when he was 53, that he was adopted.
"I'm a big, old biker-looking middle-aged Hamilton guy," Wilson said. "I started to cry, I called my daughter. I didn't know what to do."
The story is incredible.
Here are some more photographs from that night the DNTO team posted.
