THE LAKE / N-HA-A-ITK
A True-Life Canadian opera by Barbara Pentland and Dorothy Livesay

WORLD PREMIERE Production by Astrolabe Musik Theatre and Turning Point Ensemble in collaboration with Westbank First Nation

Quails' Gate Winery

60 years after its radio debut, THE LAKE "goes home" to its actual setting - British settlers Susan and John Allison's 1873 Sunnyside ranch, now West Kelowna's award-winning Quails' Gate Winery.

Astrolabe Musik Theatre and Turning Point Ensemble, in collaboration with Westbank First Nation, proudly present the first-ever full staging of Barbara Pentland's masterwork (libretto by Governor-General Award-winning poet Dorothy Livesay) in a fully integrated evening of historical Canadian opera and contemporary syilx First Nations culture.

Join us for an unforgettable evening of aural history based on the true-life story of pioneer Susan Allison's sighting of the famous creature of the lake, with the proud heritage and vibrant contemporary culture of the syillx people, set in the vineyards overlooking pristine Lake Okanagan and a magnificent backdrop of mountains.
