    Tapestry Opera in association with Crow’s Theatre present a new production of the 2016 world-premiere, award-winning ROCKING HORSE WINNER by Gareth Williams and Anna Chatterton, directed by Michael Hidetoshi Mori.

    Winner of five Dora Mavor Moore Awards, including Outstanding Production and Outstanding Direction, ROCKING HORSE WINNER is a modern adaptation of D. H. Lawrence’s masterful short story of the same name. This powerful one-act opera combines magical realism and lyrical minimalism to offer an intimate, psychological look at love, luck, greed, and obsession.

    Tapestry Opera is an award-winning, Toronto-based company dedicated to creating, developing, and performing original Canadian opera that resonates with and enriches a diverse Canadian public. Tapestry is passionate about uniquely Canadian stories told in innovative settings and unforgettably interpreted by world-class artists.
