Stage Door: Shelter

by Christopher Hoile

“The Story of a Nuclear Family”

Shelter, the latest opera by Juliet Palmer, had its world premiere in Edmonton in 2012.  A coproduction between Tapestry Opera and Edmonton Opera, Shelter is now receiving its Toronto premiere.  Palmer’s music blends a hosts of musical styles from classical to rock, but Julie Salverson’s libretto alternates between being serious and satirical without successfully uniting the two.  The result is an allegory about the birth of the atomic age that tells us nothing new about its subject.
