Robert McQueen: In January of 2007 Robert McQueen's West Coast First Nations inspired production of THE MAGIC FLUTE played to standing ovations following two and a half years of preparation that engaged a creative team of 16 First Nations and non First Nations artists.   Robert's English language adaptation of the libretto brought into focus the specifics of this unique production and included in the spoken text words and phrases of the Halq'emeylem language - the dialect of the Musqueam people.   "An inspiring, must-see production, well worth the wait, the investment and the risk:  a Magic Flute with real magic."  (Elissa Poole: The Globe and Mail) "It made me feel something rarely felt in theatre or opera or life today:  a sense of awe." (Steven Schelling: The West Ender.)
