This new opera commemorates the lives and service of 14 Canadian nursing sisters who died when their hospital ship the Llandovery Castle was torpedoed while crossing the Atlantic in June 1918. The work premieres with workshop performances on the centennial of the all but forgotten WWI tragedy.
The calm confidence, skill and selflessness of Canadian nurses during the First World War stand in stark contrast to the chaos and violence that surrounded them. From the horrors inflicted by inhuman trench warfare, the Sisters offered healing and compassion to soldiers on both sides of the conflict.
