Met Opera HD — Wozzeck (New Production) @ HD-Cineplex
Jan 11 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Conductor: Yannick Nézet-Séguin
Production: William Kentridge
Co-Director: Luc De Wit
Projection Designer: Catherine Meyburgh
Set Designer: Sabine Theunissen
Costume Designer: Greta Goiris
Lighting Designer: Urs Schönebaum

Cast: Elza van den Heever (Marie), Tamara Mumford (Margret), Christopher Ventris (The
Drum-Major), Gerhard Siegel (The Captain), Andrew Staples (Andres), Peter Mattei
(Wozzeck), Christian Van Horn (Doctor)

Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts William Kentridge’s new production of Alban Berg’s
expressionistic masterpiece Wozzeck, regarded for its intense emotional power and brilliant
score as one of the most significant operas of the 20th century. Composed during and in the
aftermath of World War I, Berg’s dark exploration of a soldier besieged by the evils of
society, is staged by Kentridge in a ramshackle warren of stairs, ramps, discarded furniture,
and debris. His own theatrically animated charcoal drawings, along with other projected
drawings, maps, and film clips, evoke a nightmarish world of crashed planes, searchlights, 

ghostly gas masks, and battlefields. Peter Mattei makes his role debut as Wozzeck opposite
Elza van den Heever as Marie, the mother of his child. Singing the roles of Wozzeck’s
tormentors are Christopher Ventris as the Drum-Major, Gerhard Siegel as the Captain, and
Christian Van Horn as the Doctor. Andrew Staples makes his Met debut as
Andres. Kentridge, who previously directed Berg’s Lulu and Shostakovich’s The Nose at the
Met, unveiled the new production at the 2017 Salzburg Festival, where it received critical
acclaim. Kentridge’s production is a co-production of the Met, Canadian Opera Company,
Opera Australia, and Salzburg Festival.

COC– The Barber of Seville @ Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts
Jan 19 @ 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Fast-talking Figaro is everyone’s go-to guy. He cuts hair, he trims beards, and – given the chance – he’ll help land the girl. So when Count Almaviva shares his heartache over the lovely Rosina, Figaro has a plan to help. But first, the pair will have to outsmart Rosina’s lecherous guardian Bartolo, who has been angling to marry the wealthy orphan himself, and they’re sparing no long-shot schemes along the way. Delightful chaos and infectiously catchy music have made this an audience favourite for centuries and this production from Spanish theatre troupe Els Comediants does not disappoint.

Figaro Vito Priante
Rosina Emily D’Angelo

City Opera Vancouver—Berlin @ Performance Works
Jan 23 @ 8:00 pm

Twilight in the Twenties

Members of a cabaret troupe gather one last time to perform for their friends, some of whom have already gone missing. It is 1934 in Berlin. The Weimar Republic has collapsed, and the world is turning upside down.

This is the premise of City Opera’s next MainStage. It is unlike anything we have done before, and it speaks directly to our own times. Using music authentic to the period, it will be presented in a cabaret setting at Performance Works on Granville Island. BERLIN runs 23, 24, and 25 January 2020, all at 8pm.

Our objective is to present music from the Weimar era, cross-connected in a new narrative. Weimar was a period of tremendous experiment and daring, risk and transgression, gender liberation, discovery and allure – especially in Berlin. We bring it to life again.

All tickets $44.50. Cabaret seating.
