In this double-bill, discover the world’s first music drama works sung and narrated in the Indigenous languages Cree and Sámi, and rooted in those traditional legends from Canada and the Nordic countries. These cross-cultural odysseys examine how we live on earth, how we pass to the land of the dead, and the consequences of love and sacrifice.
