This year at Canadian Opera Fest, we are featuring two new operas by two emerging Canadian composers: Padajuća Zvijezda by Julijana Hajdinjak and The Covenant by Dylann Miller.


Padajuća ZvijezdaJulijana Hajdinjak

Set in a celestial kingdom, Padajuća Zvijezda is a Croatian tale of two lovers living in a world where love has become outlawed. The punishment for those who love is banishment to Earth- a dishonourable world lacking the beauty of the galaxy. An opera of passion, justice and optimism, Padajuća Zvijezda explores the power of human emotion and how it can change the world. 


Sung in Croatian and English. 


Music by Julijana Hajdinjak and Libretto by Julijana and Danijela Hajdinjak.
