KHAOS has added an extra show for Sunday afternoon.

KHAOS adds one more show in Nelson

Demand high for Nelson commissioned opera, Sunday matinee added to run

KHAOS producer Marty Horswill announced Tuesday afternoon that due to exceptional demand for tickets to the world premiere production of their newly commissioned opera, the Amy Ferguson institute has added a held-over matinee performance for Sunday at 2:00 pm at the Capitol Theatre.

“This matinee performance of KHAOS will be offered to the public at the same reduced price as the Saturday matinee, $25 for adults and $15 for student and seniors,” Horswill said. “Tickets are now on sale for this held-over performance at the Capitol Theatre box office (250-352-6363).”

KHAOS has received wide media attention over the past week and the intensity of the media attention is expected to increase as the opening night performance approaches.

Canada’s flagship English language newspaper, the Globe and Mail will acknowledge the opening night of KHAOS by publishing a nation-wide article on the KHAOS world premiere in the Arts Section of its Saturday edition. The host of CBC Kelowna’s Daybreak South, Chris Walker, will attend the opening night performance and then do a remote broadcast of Daybreak South from Nelson’s Oso Negro coffee shop Friday morning.

Canada’s oldest continuously published arts magazine, Opera Canada, is sending their reviewer to attend the KHAOS premiere and prepare a review of the new opera to appear in the next edition of the magazine.

KHAOS is a re-imagining of the ancient Greek myth of Demeter and Persephone set in a contemporary world of climate change and looming global catastrophe.  This re-telling of the Greek legend asks the question “What if civilization’s greed and unrelenting drive for progress prevented Persephone from returning to Earth to console her grieving mother?  Would Demeter’s grief and rage end life on earth as we know it?”

The world premiere production of KHAOS takes place at the Capitol Theatre starting tonight and running through to the Sunday afternoon show.

The show will then travel to the Key City Theatre in Cranbrook on March 17.  The second leg of the KHAOS tour will take the show to Grand Forks, Trail and Creston, BC on May 11, 12 and 13.

Tickets are currently on sale for the Nelson and Cranbrook performances at the theatre box offices and will go on sale for the West Kootenay tour venues after March 19 at the usual box office and local retail outlets.
