NOTES: Jane Archibald's DiaryBy COC StaffPosted in NOTES
We asked Jane Archibald, the COC’s 2017/2018 Artist-in-Residence, to keep a daily(ish) diary during a very busy April in which she made her title role debut in Stravinsky’s The Nightingale and Other Short Fables, jetted to the East Coast for a recital program in Halifax, and attended to some of the less glamorous tasks of being an international opera star, from power-washing the deck furniture to filing her taxes.

“To err is human,” as the saying goes, and opera singers are as human as anybody else, despite attaining Olympian high notes. In this issue, our Artist-in-Residence reflects on the surprisingly liberating experience of making mistakes on stage, as well as the seemingly unavoidable blight of all live performers: the wardrobe malfunction. New in this issue, we’ve teamed up with Toronto-based visual designer Arpanaa Das for a series of illustrations inspired by Jane's stories.
