The Lost Words: A Spell Book

Performed by Elektra Women's Choir

Morna Edmundson, Artistic Director

Based on the book by Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris

Canada’s celebrated Elektra Women’s Choir presents The Lost Words: A Spell Book, a whimsical and evocative musical interpretation of the bestselling book by author Robert Macfarlane and visual artist Jackie Morris. The Lost Words’ magical “spells” and watercolours are meant to conjure back into the lives of children twenty words from the natural world removed from the Oxford Junior Dictionary, such as Raven, Dandelion, and Willow. The performance is a treat for the eyes and ears, with large-screen projection of the book’s illustrations, actor Laara Sadiq reading each spell, and the new compositions performed by Elektra and six instrumentalists, completing the celebration of this literary “re-wilding of childhood”.

Elektra, under Artistic Director Morna Edmundson is known internationally for its leadership in developing compelling new repertoire for women’s choirs. The evening features new works by Carmen Braden, Alex Eddington, Katerina Gimon, Nicholas Ryan Kelly, Ramona Luengen, Don Macdonald, Monica Pearce, Marie-Claire Saindon, Rodney Sharman, and Stephen Smith.
