Hockey Opus

Game Misconduct - A new opera about...hockey. This opera was written by Canadians. There's the high drama of a country defending its' national pride against marauding invaders (that would be the American hockey team); the tragedy of defeat; the exultation of the fans; and the loss of a way of life. The music was composed by Leslie Uyeda; the libretto written by Tom Cone. Game Misconduct premieres tonight as part of Festival Vancouver - a three-week music festival. Performances of the opera continue through next week. Marcie Sillman, of member station KUOW, reports.
