Spring

AT LAST!



As the rainy days melt the stubborn patches of snow, we celebrate the end of winter and arrival of springtime.

Easter brought many performances of Bach across the lands, from Joseph Schnurr in Europe (Evangelist, Johannes Passion) to Ellen Wieser (B Minor Mass) in Montreal, Scott Belluz (St. John Passion) in Brantford, and Daniel Lichti singing Cantatas #22/23 in Kitchener.

Countertenor Daniel Cabena is in the wonderful cast of Purcell's Dido and Aeneas with Les Violons du Roy, performing in Montreal, Quebec and at New York's Carnegie Hall.

This month, the curtain rises on the Scottish moors, as Giles Tomkins debuts with Edmonton Opera as Raimondo in Lucia di Lammermoor, with Adam Fisher as Normanno. In Winnipeg, Benjamin Covey sings his first Ping in Puccini's tale of power and love, Turandot. I look forward to seeing both of these productions on my Western tour in April.

As May approaches, the Canadian Opera Company welcomes Francois Racine as their director of Robert Lepage's acclaimed Bluebeard/Erwartung, May 6 - 23.

Marion Newman debuts in Mozart Requiem with Vancouver Symphony and in May will be a guest artist with the Royal Conservatory of Music's 21C Festival, in Saariaho’s The Grammar of Dreams.
