Ebulliant, mysterious, moody, triumphant. The Greater Victoria Youth Orchestra explores the gamut of human emotion with four works originally written for the stage!

The Eternal Daughter

One cold wintry night, a cab makes its way up a foggy country road to a large manor. Filmmaker Julie and her mother Rosalind (a marvelous Tilda Swinton in dual roles) have arrived for a retreat.Julie is working on a film about her mother, who once stayed in the estate when it belonged to her aunt when she was a child during WWII. There is something eerie about the manor itself. The two seemto be its only inhabitants, save a sullen receptionist and a kindly widowed groundskeeper.
