"...The fest also features the debut of The Overcoat: an Opera, with music by Canadian composer James Rolfe and libretto and direction by Morris Panych, a coproduction with The Canadian Stage Company and Tapestry Opera of Toronto (April 28 to May 12, 2018). The production reunites the key creative team from the original play, a genre-busting, wordless work that melded ballet, movement theatre, mime, and drama, and which was based on two short stories by Russian dramatist Nikolai Gogol. Morris Panych is the director, with choreography by Wendy Gorling, set design by Ken MacDonald, costume design by Nancy Bryant, and lighting design by Alan Brodie. The work will premiere at Toronto's Bluma Appel Theatre in March 2017 before coming to the Vancouver Playhouse - where the original Overcoat debuted 20 years ago...."
