Uncover the depths of human connection and power in the new opera The Sea.

In The Sea, evocative melodies transport you to the heart of life's mysteries; where love, lust, and power collide.

Be swept away by the thought-provoking and immersive opera, The Sea - a groundbreaking, debut collaboration between Forest Collective and BK Opera. At the stunning Abbotsford Convent, we invite you to embark on a journey like no other, as we explore the intricate tapestry of human connection, power, and the corrupting influence of relationships.

Composer Evan J Lawson's music is a mirror reflecting humanity. From the depths of the human soul, Lawson brings together the worlds of rich and melodic classical music with dynamic and fresh new sounds. Lawson's music illuminates the complex interplay of emotions and power dynamics in relationships. Paired with the haunting words of poet Nicole Butcher, and directed by the visionary Kate Millett (BK Opera, Artistic Director), this work brings to the stage the depths of human connection, showcasing the raw and often turbulent nature of relationships.
The words and music will expose the corrosive nature of power and the profound impact it can have on the human experience.

This December, Abbotsford Convent will come alive with a captivating season of The Sea. Join us for a visceral exploration of love, lust, and the corrupting influence of power in relationships. Let the waves of imagination wash over you as we unveil this extraordinary collaboration between Forest Collective and BK Opera, a union that promises to challenge and inspire.

Starring Daniel Szesiong Todd, Aleise Bright, Henry Shaw, Jesse Matthews, Amanda Windred and SODA, with musicians from Forest Collective.

Presented by Forest Collective, BK Opera and Abbotsford Convent.
