Programme Note:
A co-production of Tirgan and the Iranian Canadian Composers of Toronto-ICOT- sponsored by the Toronto Arts Council Arash the Archer is an operatic narration of one of the most well known Iranian myths which has captivated many with its universal values such as redemption, hope and sacrifice. Arash is a mythical figure who, in the final moments of the war between Iran and Turan, accepts the challenge of the enemy by going to the tallest mountain in Iran (Damavand) and throwing a bow, which lands very far. His body, however cannot be found, meaning that he put his entire life in the bow for his people’s liberation.This Aria based on a poem by Ahmad Shamlou starts where Arash is hiking up the mountain to throw his arrow.

Premiere Information:

Presented by Tirgan Festival
ICOT Symphony Orchestra, Choir and Narrators; Maziar Heidari, conductor.
