    • Synopsis
    • To Think Like A Composer is a joyful exhuberant introduction to the world of Canadian composer, conductor, educator and renaissance man, Stephen Hatfield. A documentary that reveals the creative colaborative excitement and tension as Hetfeild and Susan Knight and Shallaway Youth Chorus of St. John's produce and opera performed by youth for adults. An opera based on the novel "Anne and Seamus" by Kevin Major.
      There are no patronizing platitudes in Hatfield's work. The opera deals with sadness, heartbreak, and the joy of existence - the Newfoundland ethos - as interpreted in a story of a shipwreck, survival and love of the Isle Aux Morts off the southwest coats of Newfoundland in 1829.
