Known for his gentle satire on small town life, Stephen Leacock wrote the short story “Merry Christmas” as his own cry against the horrors of World War I and the inescapable robbing of innocence that war brings. Leacock is visited by two spirits over the course of one night. These otherworldly visitations will lead to a transformation including one that empowers the author to use his writing as a tool for peace.

The SSO Chamber Ensemble is conducted by Eric Paetkau and Charlie Peters is stage director.

This collaboration marks the first official co-production of the SSO and Saskatoon Opera.
