  • COC Holiday Gift Guide, 2013

    By Danielle D'Ornellas

    New at the COC Opera Shop: I heart COC mugs and pens

    It's almost the holidays! Are you still stumped for a gift for that opera afficionado in your life? Or maybe a gift for yourself? We have a few suggestions...

    1. Give the gift of opera!
    Our winter operas offer a great contrast in content and musical styles. Così fan tutte is a charming Mozart rom-com about young love and temptation, and A Masked Ball offers a Verdi tale about forbidden passion, unrequited love and political intrigue. But whatever your heart desires, you can purchase tickets online or let your loved one choose their own night with a gift certificate

Every season we feature a different collection of jewellery designed by Canadian artisans. The perfect place to find that Valentine's Day gift, perhaps? To give you a preview on the pieces available this winter, Michelle Hwu, our retail co-ordinator, spoke with Jon Klar, Alice Chik, Diandra Guglielmello (of Liel and Lentz) and Ayana Fishman (of TwoA) about their designs.
