Angel Square
Composer:Clifford Crawley
Librettist:Janet Irwin
Angel Square is a new opera for family audiences. It is performed by children, and it's all about what's important to them--friendship, feuding, fighting, and solving crimes! If you're a kid in the 1940's, life in Ottawa's Lowertown is no picnic. School is a drag, loyalties are constantly shifting, and your own neighborhood offers the possibility of random violence. Angel Square is the no-man's land; crossing it means taking your life in your hands, or the exciting opportunity of teaching some other wiseacre kid a lesson. When a real crisis occurs, watch how a group of street-tough kids use brains, brawn, and ingenious crime-solving techniques (based on those of their hero, The Shadow), to solve a mystery, bring a bad guy to justice, and learn a thing or two about friendship, responsibility, and love.
