Opera Canada is thrilled to highlight Opera Atelier founders Marshall Pynkoski and Jeannette Lajeanesse Zingg's participation at Opéra royal du château de Versailles's 250th anniversary celebration. Pynkoski and Zingg will be staging and choreographing Richard Coeur-de-lion, and will be the only non-French artists involved in the momentous anniversary.
The team includes such luminary talents as Hervé Niquet, Antoine Fontaine, and Camille Assaf.
The event not only speaks highly of the duo's immense talents in their staging of French Baroque pieces, but of Canada's rich operatic landscape as a whole.

Opera Canada writer Holly Harris took on Manitoba Underground Opera's uncompromising, rough and tumble season, and boy there was a lot to cover!
Brenna Corner and Sawyer Craig kicked off the season with Lost Voices, featuring Emily Diehl-Reader, soprano Janice Marple, before exploring the dregs of social media in a re-imagined telling of Dido & Aeneas, directed by Adam Da Ros, featuring Elizabeth Hoyt-Surdhar , Paul Winkelmans, and Meghan Symon.

Not one to leave kids out, MUO also put on an oporatic production of The Three Little Pigs, with Adam Kuiack and Nikita Labdon, directed by SarahJane Pelzer.

A success through and through, this season has left us excited for what else Manitoba Opera has got in store.
