Based loosely on Bertolt Brecht’s classic play “The Good Woman of Setzuan”, The Water Seller takes audiences on an operatic journey through 25 years of Chinese history, from 1934 to 1959, telling the story of the Communist rise to power through the lens of one village in Sichuan province and its ill-fated inhabitants. The new opera by Vancouver composer Daniel Deorksen will be performed here in concert setting, featuring soprano Emily Cheung and a jazz-rock orchestra made up of members of Vancouver band Two Apple Tobacco with guest vocalists and
instrumentalists. There will be a bar serving beer, wine and treats.

Emily Cheung, Ingrid Cheung, Stephanie Cho, Daniel Deorksen, Kayla Deorksen,
