Metro Youth Opera

Recently I’ve been fortunate to encounter small opera ensembles in the Toronto area   particularly those that showcase young talent.  Just a few days ago I wrote about the Soupcan Theatre’s program, and I interviewed the founder of Summer Opera Lyric Theatre, Guillermo Silva-Marin.

Now I’ve heard of another group.

Kate Applin, Founder & Artistic Director of Metro Youth Opera

Kate Applin is founder of Metro Youth Opera, a Toronto-based opera company that are in their third year, providing opportunities for young, emerging singers to perform and be paid for their work.

Metro Youth Opera presents its third season with an exciting triple bill of rarely-performed comedies:
