Who better to bring an extraordinary Canadian writer to the stage than Margaret Atwood, one of the country’s most celebrated authors? We can’t think of anyone. The literary giant’s debut opera is based on 19th-century writer, poet and actress Pauline Johnson. Set during the final days of the half-Mohawk, half-English performer’s life, Pauline tells the story of a self-reliant woman haunted by failure and her dual identity. At the York Theatre (May 23, 25, 27, 29, 31).
