DIRECTOR'S NOTES

Step Into Spring!

SPRING HAS ARRIVED AT LAST, THE GARDENS ARE BURSTING WITH BUDS AND BLOOMS, AND THE DAYS ARE ONCE AGAIN LONGER AND BRIGHTER.

 

So many exciting events coming up for Domoney Artists this month, including debuts for Dion Mazerolle and Giles Tomkins with the Canadian Opera Company in Louis Riel and Tosca.

 

Caitlin Wood stars as Susanna in Le Nozze di Figaro with Vancouver Opera Festival  with Leslie Dala on the podium, and Daniel Cabena is Lydie-Anne de Rozier in Pacific Opera Victoria’s performances of Les Feluettes.

 

Asitha Tennekoon is a guest soloist in Mozart’s Mass in C Minor with Tafelmusik and later in the month, is Evangelist in Toronto Bach Festival performances.  Countertenor Scott Belluz is featured in Toronto’s Royal Conservatory’s  21C Music Festival , singing in "Cantatrix Sopranica" by Unsuk Chin.

 

Marion Newman stars in Bearing, the world premiere of a dance/opera by choreographer Michael Greyeyes, with music by Bach, Vivier and Spy Dénommé-Welch, at Luminato Festival.

 

May  is Conference time for me, and I look forward to connecting with colleagues at Opera America’s annual conference in Dallas Texas, and the Orchestras Canada/International Orchestra Conference in Montreal, as well as NAPAMA’s annual retreat for Agents and Managers in Pennsylvania.
