Opera Canada is excited to announce its new Opera Canada Emerging Opera Artist Program, sponsored by RBC. The program formalizes and brings under one umbrella Opera Canada’s historic and continued mandate to highlight the extraordinary achievements of emerging Canadian opera performers and fledgling companies, as well as revolutionary new works by Canadian composers.
