Globe and Mail: “Tapestry Opera’s Naomi’s Road shows trauma of Japanese internment camps”

Tapestry Opera opened its 2016 season on Wednesday night with a powerful production of an opera whose very specific story echoes and resonates loudly and menacingly today.

Naomi’s Road is an opera, originally written in 2005 for children, based on Joy Kogawa’s tale of her childhood experiences during the Second World War, when she and many other innocent Japanese Canadians were forcibly removed from their homes, relocated to internment camps, saw their possessions sold by the government to pay for their own internment and then forced to go to places – “east of the Rockies” – at war’s end.”
