A group of mountain climbers sets out to conquer the world’s highest peak, but their adventure takes a tragic turn when a surprise storm traps them in one of the most dangerous places on earth.

A Canadian premiere from composer Joby Talbot and librettist Gene Scheer, join Calgary Opera for its gripping production of Everest. This new opera chronicles the events of the 1996 Mount Everest tragedy made famous by Jon Krakauer’s bestselling book Into Thin Air and the recent blockbuster film. Everest is sure to move, inspire, and enthrall you.

Everest runs February 2, 6, and 8, 2019 at the Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium (1415 14th Ave. NW). Tickets start at $36, and student and senior rates apply in select areas.
