Alaria’s Fiddle is a full-length musical theatre performance developed by the Smithers-based Valley Youth Fiddlers in collaboration with master fiddlers from across Canada. Alaria's Fiddle is a fictional tale about a young girl who lives with her mother on an isolated lighthouse on the west coast of Canada. With little to do but play her fiddle over the marine radio to the passing fishing fleet, Alaria quickly becomes frustrated with her limited repertoire and makes a plea to the wide world for music to play by sending a thousand messages in bottles that she casts into the ocean. As if by magic, her plea is answered. In time, she receives gifts of music from all parts of the globe: from India and Sweden and the Ukraine, and Quebec; from Baffin Island, Brazil, and the American South.
