||Afghanistan: Requiem for a Generation (World Premiere)|
In commemoration of the end of Canada’s combat mission in Afghanistan, the CPO has embarked on the largest commission in its history – a Requiem written to capture the profound loss, heartbreak and hope experienced in the struggle for peace. This distinctly Canadian event incorporates war art with historical and contemporary military imagery and serves as a monument to the sacrifices made by our Canadian servicemen and women.
Created in partnership with One Yellow Rabbit.
