Naomi's Road
Composer:Ramona Luengen
Librettist:Ann Hodges
Synopsis
Naomi's Road is based on the 1986 novel for young readers by award-winning Japanese Canadian writer Joy Kogawa.Set during World War II, the opera depicts the dramatic journey of nine-year-old Naomi, her older brother Stephen, and their "Obasan" (aunt) from their comfortable and happy home in Vancouver to a Japanese internment camp in the interior of B.C. Sister and brother endure the harshness of war, racism, bullying, and loss of family to discover the gifts that sustain them: music, words and love. Their resilience of spirit and the kindness of certain strangers they meet offer hope for the future and will lead Canadian War Museum audiences to discover the power of understanding and the beauty of compassion.
