Cellist Christine Hanson’s musical adaptation of Robert Service’s classic poem “The Cremation of Sam McGee” takes place in the frozen Yukon where Hanson’s original compositions, performed by an all-star 8-piece orchestra, transport the audience across the snow in tandem with this quirky, tragicomic tale. Narrated with conspicuous relish, it also features the celebrated Canadian artist Ted Harrison’s vibrant paintings projected as a backdrop. “The Cremation of Sam McGee” is a chilling, enthralling and entertaining multimedia work, the music of which opens a window on deeper themes of friendship, promises made, and eventual rebirth.
