From kites and flights to schools and libraries, Alexander Graham and Mabel Bell changed the world. Deaf from childhood, Mabel never heard the ring of the telephone nor the roar of the Silver Dart, but she became one of the century’s most influential advocates for women, children, the arts, and science.
From their headland overlooking Baddeck Bay they found repose from the hectic life that followed the invention of the telephone.
Here, in a newly created music-drama, is the story of the great inventor and his wife who came to Cape Breton and fell in love with its people, music, and Gaelic charm.
