Partnerships: the next evolutionary step

Over the past few years we’ve been watching a new model for opera in Ontario, with the appearance of several small companies:

  • Against the Grain
  • Essential Opera
  • Opera 5

I couldn’t help noticing the latest development, namely companies entering into partnerships with their larger brethren.

  • AtG started first, having an ongoing relationship with the Canadian Opera Company and the Banff Centre
  • Essential Opera will be partnering with Opera Lyra in Ottawa.  In October 2015, OLO partner with Essential Opera to present a double-bill of new, one-act operas by young Canadian composters, Etiquette and Regina.
  • Opera 5 have a fundraiser coming up with Volcano Theatre
    on August 15th.
