Torontonicity: Tapestry Opera’s Oksana G. Highlights Sex Trafficking

by Lori Bosworth

Excerpt:  “Sex trafficking and female disempowerment are the themes of Tapestry Opera’s new contemporary opera, Oksana G., which is making its world premiere at Toronto’s Imperial Oil Opera Theatre. Torontonicity was invited to attend the performance on May 28, 2017. With music by Aaron Gervais and libretto by Colleen Murphy, the contemporary opera tells the story of the titular character, who is eager to escape an unpromising future. It is 1997 Ukraine where the country has been experiencing a six-year recession due to a weak market economy as a result of its independence. Crimes including sex trafficking have spiked.”
