You Said It... #COC1718By COC StaffPosted in COC Staff
We started our year off with some of the best voices in the opera world for the Canadian premiere of Richard Strauss’ Arabella…
…and we served a dollop of feel-good romantic comedy with Donizetti’s The Elixir of Love!
Then, in the winter we sparked conversations and reflection with our line-up of Verdi’s Rigoletto and Mozart’s The Abduction from the Seraglio.
With The Nightingale and Other Short Fables we introduced Robert Lepage’s unique back-to-basics, jaw-dropping stage magic to some for the first time…
…while reuniting long-time opera-goers with this visionary work almost a decade after its world premiere.
And our triumphant closer, Anna Bolena, brought audiences to their feet with a spectacular cast, led by the phenomenal force of nature that is Sondra Radvanovsky.
Thanks to everyone for being part of #COC1718 and lending your voice to the conversations, questions, and experiences that make opera a vital form of cultural expression in the 21st century.
