About this Event

The Canadian Children's Opera Company proudly announces Spelunk!, our 2023-2024 season Junior Division opera.

The story follows a group of young adventurers who set forth to find their animal companion, Monty.

Spelunk! features 48 choristers in the CCOC's Intermediate (IC) and Apprentice (AC) Choruses and piano, and starts with a delightful opening of songs inspired by the opera by our Butterfly and Ruby Choruses!

Throughout the fall season, our IC and AC choristers worked with local composer, Chris Thornborrow, to write a libretto inspired by a "cave" theme. Our choristers provided Chris with the opera’s story, characters, and text, which they had produced during their weekly rehearsals, as well as their input on the music including ideas on how it should sound and the feelings the songs should evoke. Inspired by their input, Chris took these details and assembled it into a working libretto.

The result is an opera that shows the power of imagination and the adventures one can take with a bit of courage and the help of some unexpected friends.
