  The Journey is a double-bill, two one-act operas rooted in Aboriginal mythology: Pimooteewin, a Cree-language opera from the Canadian prairies; and Gállábártnit, a Sami-language opera inspired by far northern Nordic legends. The operas are written for narrator, vocal soloists, chamber choir, chamber ensemble and actors/dancers with surtitles and multi-lingual narration. Both operas are cross-cultural collaborations among aboriginal and non-aboriginal artists and companies with participation from Canada, Sweden, and Norway. The operas are inspired by quintessential Aboriginal legends of life and death, treated with humor and dignity in a profound celebration of life on this earth.
