Five years ago, Joshua’s life changed forever when his sister Nathalie, along with two other women, was murdered by her ex-boyfriend in a spree that is now considered one of the worst cases of domestic violence in Canadian history. In his grief, Joshua conceived of this song cycle. Co-commissioned by HGO with Canada’s National Arts Centre Orchestra, with music by Jake Heggie set to poems by Margaret Atwood, this powerful new work, directed by James Niebuhr, is Joshua’s way of honoring his sister’s memory and speaking out against domestic violence.
