An orchestra and its famous conductor go on tour in the great northern tundra of Quebec to visit the Cree, Innu and Inuit communities and share with them an Aboriginal chamber opera where white people are taught to laugh, and by the same token to love more. Chaakapesh, The Rogue's Journey - written by Tomson Highway, composed by Matthew Ricketts and performed by l'Orchestre Symphonique de MontrAal under the direction of Kent Nagano - is the most powerful and modern example of intercultural collaboration.
