From the Tapestry site:

Elijah's Kite, an opera for young people, premiered in New York City on April 9, 2006, as part of the Manhattan School of Music Opera Outreach Triple Bill Concert for Families and Children. A co-production between MSM and Tapestry, it is one of only a handful of Canadian operas ever to premiere in New York City.

Since Elijah's Kite is intended as an educational resource to stop bullying in schools as well as a one-act opera, a comprehensive study guide is also available, which you can download here.
