Qualchan Opera Excerpts

Eastern Washington University, Cheney

The EWU School of Music, Abigail Coté directing, is presenting excerpts from operas by area composers including the Qualchan Opera composed by Gary A. Edwards in 2016. The opera tells the love story of Qualchan who is courting his love in 1855 but their romance keeps getting interrupted by the call to battles to protect the Yakama Nation and its people, land, culture, religion and way of life. This is the heretofore untold story of the conquest of the West from the perspective of the native peoples.
