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 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:
- Mavra by Stravinsky
- La serva padrona by Pergolesi
- Le magicien by Canadian composer, Jean Vallerand
The performances are Friday April 5 at 7:30pm and Sunday April 7 at 2:30pm at Centre for Creative Learning Theatre; The Crescent School – 2365 Bayview Avenue, Toronto
Tickets are available at www.TripleBill.eventbrite.ca.
$30 – General Admission, $25 Seniors; $20 Students
