“The choreographer [of GOING HOME STAR] is aided by celebrated composer Christos Hatzis’s organic score. In fact, the music for Going Home Star may be the best ballet composition ever created in Canada. Part live orchestra, part tape, with the collaboration of the magnificent Inuit throat singer Tanya Tagaq and the exciting powwow rituals of the Northern Cree Singers, Hatzis’s score embraces the story like hand to glove. His musical detail evokes each scene perfectly, whether the disco frenzy of Annie’s nightclub, or the symphonic sweep of the grandeur of the northern woods, or the gentle harmonies of the Elders. Hatzis has created a cascade of musical images that bring the characters and the story to life. It is in the score that imagination lives.”
