World Premiere

Beyond Eden

by Bruce Ruddell
Music by Bruce Ruddell and Bill Henderson
Traditionally inspired Haida Music by Gwaai Edenshaw

Hidden along the remote shores of the Queen Charlotte Islands, the mysterious totem poles stand silent and forgotten. When a team of museum anthropologists embark on a controversial mission to remove the poles in the 1950’s, one man’s obsession leads him on a personal journey to where the Spirit lives. Based on actual events, this rock-inspired musical mixes ancient Haida tradition with modern theatricality to create a breathtaking story of loss and discovery.
