COC– Rusalka @ Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts
Oct 12 @ 7:30 pm – 10:30 pm

Dvořák’s bewitching opera is a retelling of the timeless mermaid myth. Rusalka, the water sprite, is hopelessly smitten by an earth-bound prince. But, to be by his side, she has to risk it all and leave behind her mystical home of rivers and lakes to enter the dangerous world of humans on land. Getting her wish granted, however, turns out to be as much a curse as it is a blessing.

Dreamlike melodies and ethereal poetry cast a powerful spell in this sensuous opera, which includes the “Song to the Moon” aria, performed by superstar soprano Sondra Radvanovsky in the title role.

Vancouver Opera– La Traviata @ Queen Elizabeth Theatre
Oct 17 @ 7:30 pm – 10:30 pm

La Traviata, a glorious work that deserves to be revisited time and again, was last performed eight years ago at Vancouver Opera. Verdi’s perennial favourite has been given a brand-new look and features a terrific cast. Five Canadian opera companies have joined forces to produce lavish sets and costumes inspired by the decadent music hall scene of 1920s Paris.

Violetta, a famous Parisian courtesan who is consumed both by love and a life- threatening illness, is sung by Canadian Emily Dorn. Tenor Andrew Haji, who delighted audiences as Nemorino in last year’s production of L’Elisir d’amore, is the love-struck Alfredo.

Pacific Opera Victoria– Il Trittico @ Royal Theatre
Oct 17 @ 8:00 pm – 11:00 pm

Music by Giacomo Puccini
Libretti by Giuseppe Adami and Giovacchino Forzano

Puccini’s classic 1918 collection comprises three distinct works that, when presented together as the composer wished, provide a rare and unforgettable experience:

  • Il tabarro (The Cloak): Dark and brooding. A noir thriller of infidelity and murder.
  • Suor Angelica (Sister Angelica): Delicate and sweet. A lyric tragedy of loss, suicide, and forgiveness
  • Gianni Schicchi: Bracing and astringent. A wicked black comedy full of devilish chicanery.

Opéra de Québec- La traviata @ Grand Théâtre de Québec
Oct 19 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Romantic drama with intimate character, history both simple and overwhelming, La traviata is certainly one of the most moving operas of the repertoire. Mixing love, redemption, fatality and theatrical sense, all the genius of Verdi is found in these touching characters of sincerity. Violetta’s haunting presence, which carries immeasurable pain, manages to move us deeply. Intense psychological work, it is above all a great story of love and sacrifice, followed by a reconciliation that comes too late …

With Rocco Rupolo, Gregory Dahl, and Marianne Fiset
