Program Notes

Experience the stunning true story of Captain Paul Watson and his crew as they set sail in the Antarctic in an attempt to sink whaling ships. Based on these "modern day pirates," the music tells the story of their adventures as they sail on the open seas in an attempt to stop these ships using methods that include stink bombs, prop foulers, and even the dreaded "can opener!" The music paints a picture of their ship, the Farley Mowat, which is painted black with a Jolly Roger hoisted up. The energy rises as they engage other ships and risk their lives to save these beautiful defenseless creatures.
