CALGARY OPERA’S CANADIAN PREMIERE
Bad weather has affected this year’s climbing season, and now multiple expeditions are attempting to summit Everest on 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 mountain 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 will move, inspire and enthrall you.
