Continuum is thrilled to present our first full-scale multimedia opera in this special collaboration. Set in the 1950s, the classic hockey rivalry between Toronto and Montreal takes centre stage with a side of organized crime. Love, lust, scandal, blood, betrayal - in sudden death, who wins and who loses is determined not by fate but by the final shot.

Co-produced with Ensemble contemporain de Montreal (ECM+) and the Toronto Comic Arts Festival.
