He was the first westerner to study at the secretive monasteries of Tibet. A national celebrity of the time, Theos Bernard set out on a rugged mountain trail in 1947 and was never seen nor heard from again. Conceived by Nikki Appino, The White Lama is a world premiere about the quest for the sacred, framed by the life of Bernard. Part biography, part invocation, this experimental work blends music, projected imagery and prose performed by Kevin Joyce, with a score played live by Tenzin Choegyal and Philip Glass.
