Read more about the opera Jan Tait and the Bear

Based on a medieval story handed down by oral tradition, Emily Doolittle's comedic chamber opera tells the story of Jan Tait, a rugged and roguish Shetlander who is always ready for an adventure. When he is overcharged by an unscrupulous tax collector, Jan Tait strikes back. He is transported to Norway to account for his crimes before the king, but instead of meeting his fate, he meets a ferocious bear who needs Jan as much as Jan needs him. An adventure for music and folklore fans of all ages.
