The Fur Hat Opera lays bare the workings of the state and power, and the fate of the little people and nature in it all.

The Fur Hat Opera lays bare the workings of the state and power, and the fate of the little people and nature in it all. 

The opera raises questions about sacrification of nature, guilt, deception, forgiveness, community empowerment and can one forgive wrongdoings against nature, culture and humanity. The opera brings to light a range of societal tensions: the salmon-fishing farmers v. the state, urban v. rural, old ways v. blind belief in development, and nature v. economics.
