In one of our country’s shameful acts, Naomi’s family is moved from Vancouver to an internment camp in the interior. She and her older brother Stephen struggle with the forces of war and racism, ultimately demonstrating a resilience of spirit that promises hope for the future.
"The experience of a Japanese-Canadian family in British Columbia during World War Two is told with sensitivity and clarity in music that speaks to the heart," says John Glofcheskie, Music instructor at Douglas.
"If you are interested in music, theatre, literature, history, or issues of cultural identity, you are sure to find Naomi’s Road a rewarding experience."
In 2006 this opera was presented to an enthusiastic full house at Douglas College.
