Everest, A Canadian premier

Bad weather has affected this year’s climbing season, and now multiple expeditions are attempting to summit Evereston the same day.  A bottleneck of climbers has delayed the progress of Rob Hall’s group, and he now finds himself near the top of the mountains with his client Doug Hansen, long after the agreed Turnaround time has passed.  Unbeknown to the two mountaineers, a ferocious storm is brewing below.  Meanwhile, further down the mountain, another of Rob’s clients, Beck Weathers, lies unconscious as the storm rages around him.  Everest the opera will move, inspire and enthrall you.
