The Bone Feeder – A Haunting New Opera

From Upbeat, 1:05 pm on 24 March 2017

Last night Gareth Farr and Renee Liang’s new opera The Bone Feeder premiered at the Auckland Arts Festival. The new opera is about the bones of nearly 500 Chinese gold miners that were aboard the SS Ventnor, which sunk off the coast of the Hokianga in 1902. Lynda Chanwai-Earle follows this story at the rehearsals and along our country's wild coastline in Voices.
